Alles in der Welt dreht sich um Symmetrie – vom Spin der Elementarteilchen bis hin zur atemberaubenden Schönheit einer Arabeske. Aber dahinter verbirgt sich mehr. In seinem Vortrag ermöglicht uns Marcus du Sautoy, Mathematiker an der Universität Oxford, einen Einblick in die Welt der unsichtbaren Zahlen, die alle symmetrischen Objekte verbinden.

Oxford's newest science ambassador Marcus du Sautoy is also author of The Times' Sexy Maths column. He'll take you footballing with prime numbers, whopping symmetry groups, higher dimensions and other brow-furrowers. Full bio
