TITLE: Universal measuring devices
SPEAKER: Carlos Zamora-Cura, School of Computer Science McGill University.

Measuring cups are everyday instruments used to measure a required amount of liquid for many common tasks such as cooking, etc... A measuring cup usually has gradations marked on its sides. In this talk we study measuring devices ungraded but which nevertheless can measure any integral amount of liquid up to their full capacity. These devices will be called "universal measuring devices". (Joint work with Jin Akiyama and Jorge Urrutia.)
