Creativity in Mathematics and the Arts – A public lecture by Professor John Wilson, Oxford University
2nd November 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
How should we begin to find a solution to a mathematical problem (as schoolchildren, undergraduates, or researchers)? Is precision the key ingredient? Suppose instead we want to create a work of art. Should we allow our imagination free reign, with no constraints? By considering examples in mathematics and the arts, including music and literature, we shall see that the answers to these questions are not straightforward: the creative requirements in all of these areas are similar, requiring a delicate mixture of precision and wider-ranging thinking.
