In this one-hour interview, I. M. Gelfand, one of the major mathematicians of the 20th century, discusses his mathematics, his inspirations, and his major achievements. He also touches on his work in biology and education, two areas in which he has had an important impact. The interview took place during the Joint Mathematics Meetings in Baltimore in January, 1992, not long after Gelfand left the former Soviet Union to take a position at Rutgers University. Providing a personal look at this great mathematician, the interview will have particular appeal for students, researchers, and historians in mathematics and science. In addition, Gelfand avoids discussing technical aspects of his work and focuses on what interests and inspires him as a mathematician, making this DVD accessible to a general audience.
