Ep. 4 CEDRIC VILLANI

Ten Words

"To achieve good results, work all night and eat soup". Cedric Villani is the Field's Medal winning maths professor from Paris who changed the world by discovering a new theorem (by accident). He has since dedicated his life to communicating the beauty of mathematics and insists that "to achieve good results, work all night and eat soup". He is a beautiful person, with a beautiful mind, which I do my best to explore in this episode as I seek to discover the truth behind those ten words. Join me on this voyage of discovery as we seek to understand why math(s) really is "sexy". This bourbon fueled episode was "slightly longer" than expected because of the various stories I share, here's some timings to help you dig in and out of the podcast depending upon how much time you have. I thought this would be a better solution rather than debating for hours which bits to cut out. Thank you for listening!

Cedric Villani « Des triangles, des gaz et des hommes »

Conférences exceptionnelles

Conférence exceptionnelle destinée au plus large public de M. Cédric Villani, mathématicien célèbre et médaille Fields 2010, intitulée « Des triangles, des gaz et des hommes », à l'initiative du laboratoire de mathématiques Jean Alexandre Dieudonné (Université Nice Sophia Antipolis / CNRS), le mercredi 18 avril 2012 au Théâtre du Grand Château de Valrose. Professeur de l'Université de Lyon et directeur de l'Institut Henri Poincaré, les recherches de Cédric Villani se situent entre l'analyse, les probabilités, la physique statistique et plus récemment la géométrie différentielle. Ses travaux ont eu un impact considérable en particulier dans le domaine de la théorie cinétique des gaz et de la théorie du transport optimal. Il a obtenu de nombreuses récompenses dont le Prix de la société Mathématique Européenne (2008), le Prix Henri Poincaré de l'Association Internationale de Physique Mathématique (2009), le Prix Fermat (2009), et la médaille Fields (2010) considérée comme la plus haute distinction en mathématiques.
