Webinar on Mathematics in Unexpected Places

The Webinar on Mathematics in Unexpected Places took place on Thursday, September 3rd, 2020 from 2 pm until 3 pm, with Dr. Bruno D’Amore from Italy, as our invited speaker. This virtual event was free and open to the general public.

The invited speaker started the virtual event by stating that mathematics is everywhere and has a thousand colors. Dr. Bruno D’Amore presented the mathematics in “Crucifixion, corpus hypercubus” by Salvador Dali, in “Melencolia” by Albrecht Durer, in “Gulliver’s Travels” by Jonathan Swift, and in the legend of Carthage, the great enemy of Rome which is located in what is today the Gulf of Tunis. The speaker also invited the participants to read his book in Spanish called “Matemática en todo,” in which you can find many more examples of mathematics in unexpected places.
