Marcus du Sautoy

The Number Mysteries: A Mathematical Odyssey Through Everyday Life

Virtual venue: Palace Hall
The author of The Number Mysteries shows us how everyday problems can be solved by maths – from smartphones and transatlantic flight to bending a ball like Beckham and predicting population growth. Marcus was mathematical consultant for Complicite’s A Disappearing Number, a theatre production that toured India in August with the British Council. Introduced by Nawaid Anjum.
