The beauty I see in algebra: Margot Gerritsen at TEDxStanford

Margot Gerritsen is a professor of energy resources engineering and the director of the Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering. After receiving her master's degree in applied mathematics in the Netherlands, Gerritsen moved to the United States in search of hillier and sunnier places. She received her doctorate in scientific computing and computational mathematics at Stanford, and later became a faculty member at the University of Auckland in New Zealand. Gerritsen specializes in renewable and fossil energy production and in computational mathematics. She is also active in coastal ocean dynamics and yacht design.

Can Math Equations Be A Form of Art?

Sometimes, math can be hard... but can it also be beautiful? Our resident mathematician Tara Long joins DNews today to discuss a new study shows how math can be perceived as a beautiful piece of art in the brain.

The Experience of Mathematical Beauty and its Neural Correlates

Many have written of the experience of mathematical beauty as being comparable to that derived from the greatest art. This makes it interesting to learn whether the experience of beauty derived from such a highly intellectual and abstract source as mathematics correlates with activity in the same part of the emotional brain as that derived from more sensory, perceptually based, sources.

The Most Beautiful Formula in Mathematics - Professor Raymond Flood

In this short introduction to Euler and his work, Professor Raymond Flood talks about Euler’s enormous contribution to mathematics. As well as being one of the most prolific mathematicians of all time, Euler is often regarded as one of the most intellectually elegant. His work has been frequently voted as the most beautiful of all time.

Raymond Flood is Gresham Professor of Geometry. Information on his ongoing series of free public lectures is available here:

More information on Professor Flood can be found here:

Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597. This tradition continues today with all of our five or so public lectures a week being made available for free download from our website. There are currently over 1,700 lectures free to access or download from the website.

Beautiful Mathematics in the Natural World

This is my end of the year video! I wanted to do something a little different. I traveled to Portland, Oregon for a week to explore/meet people and decided to use the shots I took while hiking to illustrate how math is all around us in the natural world. We can and will discover the rules of intelligence. The fact that it is governed by mathematics only makes it that much more beautiful. From simple rules emerge incredible complexity.

The Beauty of Math

My AP Language final project about the beauty of mathematics.

What's so sexy about math? | Cédric Villani

Hidden truths permeate our world; they're inaccessible to our senses, but math allows us to go beyond our intuition to uncover their mysteries. In this survey of mathematical breakthroughs, Fields Medal winner Cédric Villani speaks to the thrill of discovery and details the sometimes perplexing life of a mathematician. Beautiful mathematical explanations are not only for our pleasure, he says. They change our vision of the world.

111111111x111111111 - Beauty of Mathematics

If you multiply a number with only 1s by itself, you end up with a palindrome of the numbers in ascending and then descending order. People have called this an example of the beauty of mathematics. If your number has N digits of 1, then its square will be the numbers 1 to N in ascending and then descending order. The pattern continues indefinitely, although it breaks after 9 because of carry over. I explain why the pattern happens using the method of multiplying by lines.
