About this Event

Berlin Science Week / Mathematics Nowhere – Mathematics Everywhere

Mathematics has been an area of study throughout human history. Today, mathematics has developed into a tool so sophisticated that most people do not even notice its presence in our lives. We can say that mathematics exists both nowhere and everywhere. More recently, with the development of AI and big data analysis, there is a new recognition of the importance of mathematics as an innovative science with critical applications. In particular, it is remarkable that mathematics can bring deep insights into the analysis of music. Mathematics is now an international enterprise which can benefit society. The purpose of this event is to present and discuss examples of how mathematics contributes to various aspects of modern society.

The event consists of talks and a panel discussion. The three talks will be:

• Professor Kuniyasu Saitoh, Advanced Institute for Materials Research (AIMR) Tohoku University, Japan, will talk on an application of mathematics to material science as an example of mathematical innovation.

• Professor Thierry Zomahoun, the President and CEO of the African Institute for Mathematical Science (AIMS), will talk on mathematics in Africa.

• Dr. Daniel Ramos, chief content officer of IMAGINARY, a Berlin based non-profit organisation, will present the connections of mathematics and music including current research.

After the lectures, the lecturers will join a panel discussion on the necessity of mathematics and its availability to all members of society. The panel will be joined and chaired by:

• Prof. Sylvie Paycha, University of Potsdam.
