These are the show notes for episode 48 of the Travels in a Mathematical World Podcast. 48 is the smallest number with 10 divisors. More about 48 from Number Gossip.

This week Andrea Donafee spoke to me about her work for Cash Management Systems in optimisation around managing cash balances. You can read more about Andrea’s work by reading her profile on the Maths Careers website.

Do you know what the software is that Andrea worked on for visualising group presentations? I assume it’s a GAP package, but any more than that I can’t divine.

The presentation skills are second to none, obviously fine tuned due to working close to a formatting genius.

Hi Christian

I developed a sperate software package but it was written it GAP. It was called SPICE (Spherical Picture Editor).

If you need any more information, please let me know.

Thanks

Andrea

Thanks, I’ve found the paper describing it now. Not what I was imagining, but interesting nonetheless, and potentially quite useful!

Ok great. If you need any more ifnormation please let me know.
