Manjul Bhargava, Steven Strogatz, Matt Brown and Lynn Sherr — The Infinite Mind: Exploring Mathematical Genius

Mar 11, 2016

On January 16, 1913, the world-renowned mathematician G. H. Hardy received nine spectacular pages of mathematical theorems from an unknown, self-taught Indian student named Srinivasa Ramanujan.

“It was scarcely possible to believe,” said Hardy. “They must be true because, if they were not true, no one would have the imagination to invent them.”

Where does mathematical genius originate and what does it tell us about the human mind? Join us for “The Infinite Mind: Exploring Mathematical Genius,” as we explore these and related themes with mathematicians Manjul Bhargava and Steven Strogatz, together with Matt Brown, director of The Man Who Knew Infinity, a new film about Ramanujan to be released in April, starring Jeremy Irons and Dev Patel.
