Il mondo ruota attorno alla simmetria - dallo spin delle particelle subatomiche alla vertiginosa bellezza di un arabesco. Ma c'e' piu' di quanto non sembri a prima vista.

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
