MoMath: Math Encounters — Volumes and Verse

Community Culture Education


4:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Register for the 4 pm or 7 pm session

225 5th Ave, New York, NY 10010

We tend to think of mathematics and literature almost as intellectual opposites.  In fact, however, the connections between them are profound.  Join mathematician and author Sarah Hart to discover the hidden mathematical structures behind everything from poetry to novels, and reveal some of the beautiful mathematical imagery and symbolism in fiction, from simple fairytales to classics like War and Peace.  You’ll even create a book of poems that uses the power of math to turn just a few lines of verse into more than a thousand poems.

Special introduction by Thomas Lin, founder of Quanta Magazine and Quanta Books.

Math Encounters is MoMath’s popular free public presentation series celebrating the spectacular world of mathematics, produced with support from Simons Foundation International.  Light refreshments will be served.
