Mathematics for the senses


It is an abstract science: mathematics. Nevertheless, we are surrounded by mathematical structures wherever we go – often without even realizing it. The lecture aims to increase our awareness in this regard. On the basis of real and digital experiments and visualizations, Jürgen Richter-Gebert will demonstrate how mathematical structures can be literally grasped and experienced.

Models and experiments have a long tradition in mathematics, at the latest since the 19th century. The lecture will offer approaches for making mathematics accessible to a broad public and for allaying inherent fears. Walk-through exhibitions and virtual experiments with computers play an important role here: They arouse curiosity, so that visitors and users are encouraged to become researchers and discoverers themselves.
