Revolutions in mathematics

Thomas Fink talks about radical new mathematical developments that set the stage for modern physics in part 2 of our Grand Tour of Science.

The Grand Tour of Science is a comprehensive account of modern science in seven two-hour lectures for the public. The lectures are in two parts, with drinks and discussion before, in between and after.

This lecture covers:
• Non-integer dimensions and scale invariance
• Riemannian geometry
• Groups and crystals
• Aperiodicity and Gödel incompleteness
• Turing machines and non-computability
