In a glass case in the hallway of Altgeld Hall on the University of Illinois campus lies an all-but-forgotten machine -- a Harmonic Analyzer designed by Albert Michelson to perform Fourier Analysis. This presentation will describe the year long effort to memorialize this machine via the creation of a series of videos and production of posters and a coffee table book. No specialized knowledge will be necessary to appreciate this wondrous machine.


The group will reminisce about Jerry Uhl, Professor Emeritus of Mathematics at the University and developer of Wolfram's Calculus & Mathematica, and his significant contributions to the field of mathematics.
