Event Title

Takagi’s Function: Construction and History

Description

In this talk, Candela will explore the function, a continuous but nowhere differentiable curve. Constructed in 1903 by mathematician Teiji Takagi, this curve has many interesting properties. Candela will look at the construction of this map by the addition of “tent” maps, as well as discuss the history of Takagi, his function, and his work.
