Seminario Studenti

Mercoledì 29 Aprile 2015 alle ore 11:30 in Aula 1A150, Martin Grötschel (Zuse Institute, Matheon & Technische Universität Berlin) terrà un seminario dal titolo "Is Mathematics USEFUL?".

Calculating percentages, profit margins, areas, volumes, and other simple computations are obviously useful. Is this all the mathematics that people encounter in daily life? Is there more mathematics “contained” in the products that surround us? Do industry and commerce really need mathematics? Is the mathematics taught at universities useful at all? Should it be? I will address these questions in my lecture.
