The Mathematical Artistry of Paul Dirac: Michael Atiyah on the Life and Work of Quantum Genius

Simply Charly's Culture Insight

Paul Dirac (1902–1984) was an English theoretical physicist and mathematician who was instrumental in the development of both quantum mechanics and quantum electrodynamics. In 1933, he shared the Nobel Prize in Physics with Austrian physicist Erwin Schrödinger.Sir Michael Atiyah is one of the world's greatest living mathematicians and is well known throughout the mathematical world. He is a recipient of the Fields Medal, the mathematical equivalent of the Nobel Prize, as well as the Abel Prize—two of mathematics' highest honors—and is still at the peak of his career. Atiyah received a knighthood in 1983 and the Order of Merit in 1992. He also served as president of the Royal Society from 1990–1995.

The Universe Speaks in Numbers: Michael Atiyah interviewed by Graham Farmelo

The Universe Speaks in Numbers

Science writer Graham Farmelo in conversation with Sir Michael Atiyah. In an interview with Graham in November 2018, Sir Michael Atiyah described how he became a ‘quasi-physicist. Ten weeks later, Atiyah was dead. He was one of the most accomplished mathematicians of the past century: no one had done more in the past decades to discover close links between pure mathematics and fundamental physics. Undoubtedly a great mind, he was also an indomitable spirit.Read more in Graham Farmelo's book The Universe Speaks in Numbers. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

Oxford Mathematics Public Lectures - Numbers are Serious but they are also Fun - Michael Atiyah

The Secrets of Mathematics

Archimedes, who famously jumped out of his bath shouting "Eureka", also 'invented' the number pi. Euler invented e and had fun with his formula e^(2 pi i) = 1. The world is full of important numbers waiting to be invented. Why not have a go? Michael Atiyah is one of the world's leading mathematicians and a pivotal figure in twentieth and twenty-first century mathematics. His lecture is followed by an interview with Sir John Ball, Sedleian Professor of Natural Philosophy here in Oxford, where Michael talks about his lecture, his work and his life as a mathematician.The Oxford Mathematics Public Lectures are generously supported by XTX Markets.
