What if modern maths could reveal some of nature’s deepest secrets? At this fascinating event, the award-winning science writer and biographer will take us through his ground-breaking exploration of the relationship between physics and maths, and will reveal the discoveries that have enriched our understanding of the universe. ‘A superbly written, riveting book. In elegant prose, and using virtually no equations, Farmelo describes the ongoing quest of great thinkers to understand the bedrock nature of reality, from the microworld to the cosmos. ’Martin Rees, Astronomer Royal, Emeritus Professor of Cosmology and Astrophysics at the University of Cambridge.
