To Infinity and Beyond: Mathematics in the Movies

MUMS Seminar

by Dr Marty Ross


Institution: University of Melbourne
Date: Fri 6th May 2005
Time: 1:00 PM
Location: Russell Love Theatre, Richard Berry Building

Abstract: Buzz Lightyear's famous cry is of course intended to announce
his heroic rather than his mathematical status. But mathematicians and
mathematical scenes do sometimes appear in the movies. We'll give a survey
of such appearances, focussing a little on the serious and a lot on the
silly.

This is, of course, free, and refreshments will be provided afterwards.
