Marcus du Sautoy talks to Lászlo Lovász

Symmetry

Budapest 2013, 

In a short lecture the British mathematician reveals how symmetry is a fundamental concept both in the arts and the sciences: from the walls of the Alhambra to the Higgs Boson, from the music of Bach to deadly viruses. He tells the story, based on his book Finding Moonshine, of how mathematicians have produced a language to be able to explore, tame and classify this slippery concept. Followed by a converstaion with Wolf Prize-winning mathematician Professor Lászlo Lovász.
