Part of the TMS Symposium

In this talk I will try and show how pictures and diagrams are used to give insight into (and even proofs of) many theorems in mathematics. I will take a few examples of theorems from different areas (although mainly geometry) and demonstrate how their proof can be summarized by a simple picture. I want my talk to be accessible to everyone, so I intend to start very basic, but will hopefully have time to include some examples from fields such as knot theory and homotopy theory.

This talk is part of the Trinity Mathematical Society series.
