IMA Public Lecture: The Living Art of Mathematics

  • University of Minnesota 516 Delaware St SE Minneapolis, MN, 55455 United States (map)

Sponsored by the College of Science and Education, this event takes place at 2-470 Phillips-Wangensteen and is free and open to the public.

From the website: "Villani will explore how mathematicians, obsessed with the notion of elegance, consider themselves as artists and poets in a form of art that is more alive than ever. Examples include the collaborative images of mathematician Richard Palais and graphic artist Luc Bénard created using 3D-XplorMath software, and Man Ray’s Shakespearean Equations paintings that were inspired by photographs of mathematical models made in the 1930s. Villani will also show how the intuition and creative genius of mathematicians have been inspiring artists for years."
