Mathematical visualizations: from number theory, graph theory, and algebra to Celtic knots and mathematical art!

Join us on a visual and colorful journey about how mathematical structures can be visualized, explored, and better understood through programming and algorithms. We'll breeze through various mathematical topics, such as number theory, graph theory, and algebra, and look at how we can visualize and make the abstract more tangible. We'll see how visualizations can become art and explore many examples of mathematical and algorithmic art.
