The Friends of the Library Annual Fall Forum will be held at 2 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 10, in room 151 of Perry Library at Old Dominion University. It is free and open to the public.

The program will feature a joint presentation by Martina Doblin, research assistant professor of ocean, earth and atmospheric sciences, and John Adam, University Professor of Mathematics, on "Art in Science" and "Math in Nature."

Doblin, along with other Old Dominion faculty members, is using images of microscopic marine organisms to develop a K-12 curriculum that combines the disciplines of science and art. Her presentation will feature ideas used in the Art in Science curriculum. Doblin initiated the Art in Science project at Old Dominion in 2000.

Adam's presentation on "Math in Nature" will feature a slide show of patterns in the environment, such as clouds, flowers and rainbows. Among the courses Adam teaches is "Mathematics in Nature," which forms the basis for his upcoming book "Mathematics in Nature: Modeling Patterns in the Natural World."

Parking for the forum is available in the lot across from the library on 45th Street and in the lot between the library and the Mills Godwin Jr. Life Sciences Building on 43rd Street.
