What's the talk about?

 Everyone knows that The Simpsons is probably the most successful show in television history. Simon Singh 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. Simon will also discuss how the writers of Futurama have similarly made it their mission to smuggle deep mathematical ideas into the series.

 

All talks are free and open to the public but we do suggest a £2 donation on the night to help us to cover expenses.
