- You will learn how mathematics explains natural phenomena, the inner-workings of the technology we use in our daily lives, and how it interacts with art. Concretely, at the end of the course, you will be able to explain why the Fibonacci numbers appear so commonly in nature, why rainbows always appear at an angle of 42 degrees and why kittens curl into a ball when sleeping; you will be able to prove the mathematics behind, or implement algorithmically, one technology we utilize in our daily lives, such as RSA encryption, artificial neural networks or quaternion rotation. Finally, you will have a confident understanding of the two-sided interaction between art and mathematics.
- The most important prerquisite is curiosity. An understanding of high-school geometry is helpful, but not mandatory.
In this unique course, you will gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for all aspects of life around you through the use of mathematics. The course will discuss how you can understand nature in mathematical terms, the math behind the scenes of the technology we rely on in our daily lives, and the interplay between math and art.
- Students and professionals interested in seeing how mathematics explains aspects of nature, powers the technology we use in our daily lives, and interacts with art. Anyone curious about the profession of a mathematician will benefit from this course..
