Summary
Two professors from Williams College present arguments, challenge orthodoxy, brazenly flaunt convention, and often behave badly in this humorous debate over the relative merits of everyone's favorite transcendental numbers, pi and e, staged for the 1st Year Family Weekend at Williams College on Oct. 29, 2005. The debate participants: Colin Adams states the case for pi, Thomas Garrity is e's champion, and Edward Burger, chair of the Dept. of Mathematics and Statistics at Williams College, serves as moderator
