“Poetry, Drumming, and Mathematics”
Professor Manjul Bhargava of Princeton University will present “Poetry, Drumming, and Mathematics”
Professor Bhargava is a winner of the Fields Medal (which, along with the Abel Prize, is the highest honor a mathematician can receive), as well as an accomplished tabla player.
He brings a unique perspective to the triple intersection of poetry, music, and math.
His talk will highlight the connections between Sanskrit poetry, tabla playing, and mathematics.
These three free public events (by Bhargava, by the inventor of the Rubik Cube, and by an expert on M. C. Escher)
will showcase the very best of STEAM and we know the general public will find them stimulating and rewarding.
