“Science-Rendez-Vous” - Art&Math: A love Story (6/9/2016)
Kids are going back to school and so their parents should follow their path and obviously join the first “Science Rendez-vous” that will be exploring the inspiring relationship between art and math – introduced by Prof. Felipe Cucker.
“The paths of the arts and of mathematics have crossed in many occasions. Most of the times, it is the nature of artistic pieces that is influenced by mathematical ideas as a result of this crossing but occasionally it is the other way round.
As in a love story, let’s overview these crossings where influence went in both sides.”
Prof. Felipe Cucker is a Chair Professor of Mathematics at City University of Hong Kong. This French Alumni main research subject encompasses various aspects on the foundations of computational mathematics.
