Algorithms, Patterns, and Mathematical Art

Join us for a visual and colorful talk on how mathematical structures can be visualized, explored, and better understood through programming and algorithms. It will cover randomness, games, combinatorics, number theory, graph theory, and algebra, but in a way that is comprehensible and down-to-earth. We will look at how the abstract can be explored, visualized, and made more concrete. Welcome to a lecture on mathematical and algorithmic art!

Roger Antonsen is an associate professor at the Department of Informatics, University of Oslo, visiting researcher at UC Berkeley, California, renowned TED speaker, author, artist, popular science communicator, and holds a doctorate in informatics. He is the author of the university textbook "Logical Methods: The Art of Thinking Abstractly and Mathematically" and has won several awards for "best lecturer".
