Monday 20th Jan 5.45pm
Appearing in Australia for one night only, Simon Singh, best-selling author of Fermat’s Last Theorem and The Code Book, will discuss his latest book The Simpsons and Their Mathematical Secrets. He will explain how a team of mathematically gifted writers have covered everything from calculus to geometry, from pi to game theory, and from infinitesimals to infinity in various episodes of The Simpsons. Singh will also discuss how the writers of Futurama have similarly made it their mission to smuggle deep mathematical ideas into the series.
Many thanks to the VIC Skeptics for making this event happen!
