Details About the talk

Margaret Wertheim conduce un progetto per riprodurre le creature delle barriere coralline, usando una tecnica di lavoro all’uncinetto inventata da una matematica – celebrando le meraviglie della barriera corallina ed immergendosi profondamente nella geometria iperbolica che sta alla base della creazione del corallo.

Margaret Wertheim · Figurer

By masterminding a project to model a coral reef armed only with crochet hooks, Margaret Wertheim hopes to bring some of the most complicated mathematical models embodied in our universe into the minds (and hands) of the masses.
