Storrs Campus
Monteith 321

This talk is an introduction to discrete calculus, which is widely used in computations and applied mathematics. How does one compute sums like $$ \sum_{k=1}^n k^2$$ and $$\sum_{k=1}^n k 2^k?$$ We will discuss a systematic way to find such formulas using discrete analogues of integrals, derivatives, the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus, etc.
