Satyan Devadoss: The Shape of Nature
Satyan Devadoss, Professor of Mathematics at Williams College speaks at this year's Department of Mathematics and Statistics Colloquium Kaori Kitao Lecture.
Satyan Devadoss, professor of mathematics at Williams College, gave the 2014 Department of Mathematics and Statistics Colloquium T. Kaori Kitao Lecture. The renaissance was a time when art and science were not polar opposites, but extensions of one another. The advent of the enlightenment era, however, introduced a dualistic tension between the visual arts and scientific research. Today, the study of nature is serving as a bridge between these worlds once again. Heavily infused with imagery, Devadoss examines several examples at the intersection of art, visualization, and research mathematics.
