3.21.13 … March Madness … bracketology — the art and science of picking winners among 68 teams in a single-elimination tournament …

LA Times, March Madness, Chartier,  Davidson math professor, bracketology:  Funny, his name is chart-ier!

Blame it on tiny Butler College. Chartier’s math class was among those to recognize that fifth-seeded Butler was destined for the finals in 2010. That was the second year Chartier started making bracketology — the art and science of picking winners among 68 teams in a single-elimination tournament — part of his syllabus. That’s right: take Chartier’s course and you’ll be deep into basketball come March. He’s even written a research paper on it.
