The Simpsons & their Mathematical Secrets. Simon Singh at @McrSciFest Sat 26 Oct 2013 6.30pm

The Simpsons and Their Mathematical Secrets. A free Manchester Science Festival talk.

Sat 26 Oct 2013 6.30pm here in Blackwell’s.

We are delighted to announce the latest addition to our Manchester Science Festival line-up.

Simon Singh, best-selling author of Fermat’s Last Theorem and The Code Book, will discuss his new book The Simpsons and Their Mathematical Secrets.

He will explain how a team of mathematically gifted writers have covered everything from calculus to geometry, from pi to game theory, and from infinitesimals to infinity in various episodes of The Simpsons. Singh will also discuss how the writers of Futurama have similarly made it their mission to smuggle deep mathematical ideas into the series.

This event is free and will last an hour. No booking required.
