The Lecture will be preceded by a five minute presentation entitled "Balancing food production and the environment in Mexico" by CSAR Award Student David Williams.

I shall look at ways in which maths can shed light upon a range of questions in the arts and how problems of art and design inspire new mathematical questions. Our canvas will be broadly drawn with examples from different areas of the arts, including painting, textual analysis, diamond cutting, Henry Moore’s stringed figures, ballet, and even the best place to stand when viewing statues.

This talk is part of the Cambridge Society for the Application of Research (CSAR) series.
