Abstract for Michael Mays' Talk

Title:  Graphical representations of mean values

Abstract:  We consider several ways to define mean values, including arithmetic, geometric, and harmonic means and some more obscure means as well, and survey techniques for organizing mean values into families to include as many special cases as possible.  We will consider algebraic families, a graphical approach due to Moskovitz, and calculus based techniques.
