Indra's Pearls: A mathematical adventure

Prof. Caroline Series, Warwick University

Date Icon Week 6, Monday 27 January MT 2020
Time Icon 8:15pm

This talk is based on the book of the same title by David Mumford, Caroline Series and David Wright. It tells the story of the authors’ computer explorations of the geometry of repeated Moebius maps, whose interactions produce intricate fractals. We will explain the simple algorithms whose repetition creates these remarkable images, behind whose intricacies lies a wealth of mathematical meaning and suggestive questions for research.

Caroline Series is a Professor of Mathematics at Warwick University, her research interests include: Hyperbolic geometry, Kleinian groups, and dynamical systems.
