Marcus du Sautoy: Symmetry, reality’s riddle (lecture)
TED presents Marcus du Sautoy, Oxford’s newest science ambassador in this interesting lecture exploring the world of symmetry. From the spin of the subatomic particles to fainting beauty of an arabesque there is more to it than meets the eye. This lecture will offer viewers a brief glimpse into the world of the invisible numbers that marry all symmetrical objects.
Marcus du Sautoy is passionate about math and has been from the beginning of his academic career. He’s played host to the popular BBC mini-series “The Story of Maths” which examined compelling mathematical techniques and theories from across the variety of cultures and throughout our history. Prior to hosting the popular series he presented a different lecture The Num8er My5teries, which was a fascinating presentation of the most stubborn math problems in history.
His knowledge and successes don’t end there though. Sautoy is also a published author. He is known best for his popular book The Music of the Primes, which examines the several attempts to crack the Riemann Hypothesis. Sautoy is also known for his popular book, Symmetry: A Journey into the Patterns of Nature, released in 2008. This book explored the many types of aesthetic and mathematical symmetry.
Sautoy brings symmetry to life in this fascinating lecture.
