Math Encounters at MoMath: Poetry, Drumming, and Mathematics

Did you know that many modern mathematical tools used in probability and combinatorics, and applied in varied technologies such as those on NASA space missions, originated in problems encountered by linguists and musicians thousands of years ago? Princeton University Professor and 2014 Fields Medalist Manjul Bhargava looks at some of these ancient, poetic problems — and their remarkable solutions through the ages — to reveal much about the nature of human thought and the origins of mathematics.

Math Encounters is MoMath’s popular public presentation series celebrating the spectacular world of mathematics, produced with support from the Simons Foundation.
