Meeting #1127

The 2017 Einstein Public Lecture will be held during this meeting, April 1, 2017. The lecturer will be Abstract: Over the years I've made a number of graphical user interfaces whose purpose is to help understand problems in geometry and dynamics. These interfaces let you discover patterns and organize information in a way that would be practically impossible using pencil and paper. Sometimes they also facilitate computational proofs that are a kind of deal with the devil: They give a rigorous proof for an appealing result without offering conventional insight into why the result is true. In this talk I will show some of my graphical user interfaces and explain the mathematics behind them. |
