Town Hall Seattle says
Fields Medal Award-winner Cedric Villani’s Birth of a Theorem follows the years leading up to his prize-winning theories on Landau damping (which garnered him the prestigious award in 2010) and offers a glimpse into how his mind works, ambitiously intertwining personal reflection with diary entries and email excerpts. Rarely seen outside of his native France, Villani’s discussion will move beyond hard mathematics and give insight into how great discoveries are made. He’ll also share how his professional and personal lives were equally influential on his work, and put a face to the complicated numbers he works with daily.
