ath is an essential tool in the modern world, and one of the most despised. Let’s look at its applications and the presentations that showcase them to us.
You’ve probably heard the cliché that history repeats itself countless times. Well, it turns out it’s even more valid than we thought, proves data researcher and Harvard scientist Jean-Baptiste Michel. The Frenchman’s presentation reveals that mathematics can teach us much about history, helping us find hidden cyclical patterns. They are behind the deadliness of wars, changes in languages and many other aspects of history.
Lots of mathematicians say that that mathematics is everywhere, but it can’t be true when it comes to love and finding a partner, right? Well, you would be wrong to assume that and Hannah Fry proves it. Hannah findinds patterns behind all events in human life with the help of math. Love and mating are no exception. Hannah will show you her entertaining and remarkable theories regarding love, and will even give you her best three pieces of advice for finding love.
Jedidah Isler is an astrophysicist uncovering the secrets of space and the universe. In her stunning presentation, you can easily see why she is in love with her work. Outer space and its particles are fascinating. Better yet, there is logic behind it all, that’s right, math!
We’ve been through history, love and the secrets of the universe up to this point. If you’re still not convinced that math is everywhere, it’s time to look at sports. Rajiv Maheswaran and his team are researching the moves of basketball players and help teams improve. It’s fascinating how math can find patterns in places where improvisation and quick thinking are the among the most important skills. The scientific approach is working and you can clearly see that in Rajiv’s presentation.
It’s only appropriate to finish this article with a presentation by a mathematician that talks about his love for the science of numbers. Cedrik Villani is a Fields Medal winner who firmly believes math can show us some of the deepest secrets of this world. His work will show you that not only he loves what he’s doing, but that numbers can truly be found anywhere around us. Perhaps, math is really the path to understanding life and the universe?
What are your thoughts about math and it’s uses? Do you have any interesting applications of math to share?
