The Secret Mathematicians - Professor Marcus du Sautoy

Thursday 8th October 2015.

Registration for the 2015 lecture is now open. Please note that registration closes at 5pm on Wednesday 7th October and we are unable to accept further requests after this time.

Abstract:

From composers to painters, writers to choreographers, the mathematician’s palette of shapes, patterns and numbers has proved a powerful inspiration. Artists can be subconsciously drawn to the same structures that fascinate mathematicians as they hunt for interesting new structures to frame their creative process.

Professor du Sautoy will explore the hidden mathematical ideas that underpin the creative output of well-known artists and reveal that the work of the mathematician is also driven by strong aesthetic values.

Venue:

Theatre B, University Place. This is building 37 on the Campus Map.
