Description: S. Brent Morris likes to say that he's the only person with a doctorate in card shuffling. A mathematician at the National Security Agency (the world's largest employer of mathematicians) in Fort Meade, MD, he is also a showman, specializing in card tricks. Morris demonstrated a number of feats of legerdemain at last month's Mathfest in Toronto. Morris explains the mathematics of perfect shuffles in his new book Magic Tricks, Card Shuffling, and Dynamic Computer Memories.
