This lecture is a visual treat as Ingrid Daubechies celebrates the joy, creativity and beauty of mathematics.

Inspired by textile artist Dominique Ehrmann, Ingrid, with Dominique, conceived the idea of a large mathematical installation that incorporated a myriad of mathematical ideas in an entertaining and visually stimulating way. Aided by the whimsy and imagination of 24 colleagues from across the mathematical universe, the Installation is taking shape - all kinds of shape. So who is Arnold and why is he baking Mandelbrot cookies?

Multi-award winning Ingrid Daubechies is James B. Duke Distinguished Professor of Mathematics and Electrical and Computer Engineering at Duke University. The Oxford Mathematics Public Lectures are generously supported by XTX Markets.
