This is not a mathematics talk but it is a talk for mathematicians. Too often, we think of historical mathematicians as only names assigned to theorems. With vignettes and anecdotes, I’ll convince you they were also human beings and that, as the Chinese say, “May you live in interesting times” really is a curse. “More Tales…” follows up on the talk I gave at INI in January 2015, but it is not assumed listeners heard that earlier talk. Among the mathematicians I’ll discuss are Riemann, Newton, Krein and Noether.

This talk is part of the Isaac Newton Institute Seminar Series series.
