Lecture Theatre 3, School of Chemistry
Public talk by Professor Emmanuel Peyre: ‘From numerology to number theory: the fascination of numbers’
Starting with the ancient Babylonians, strange relations between numbers have long been investigated. In the history of mathematics, such relations have proved an inexhaustible source of inspiration for the creation of new theories and tools. Today they still form a central theme of research in mathematics with a surprising number of applications to everyday life. Professor Emmanuel Peyre of the University of Grenoble, is a current IAS Benjamin Meaker Visiting Professor at the University.
