Le séminaire "La Pensée des Sciences. Recherche sur l’asymétrie et l’évolution du concept de symétrie", organisé par le CRHI et le laboratoire J.A. Dieudonné, est heureux de profiter du séjour de Joseph ROMANO (University of Texas) au sein du laboratoire ARTEMIS (Observatoire de la Côte d’Azur) pour l’inviter à donner une conférence (en anglais) mardi 13 juin 2017, à partir de 17h, en salle de conférences du Laboratoire J.A. Dieudonné (campus Valrose).

Title : « Learning math from the prints of M.C. Escher »

 


Abstract : Maurits Cornelis Escher was a Dutch graphic artist who produced over 400 prints--mostly woodcuts and lithographs--during his lifetime (1898-1972).  He is noted mostly for his symmetric tilings of the plane using recognizable figures (e.g., birds, fish, lizards), various representations of infinity, scenes with ambiguous or unconventional perspective, and the depiction of physically impossible objects. Although Escher never considered himself to be a mathematician, the majority of his artwork is based on rather sophisticated mathematical concepts, some of which even anticipated mathematical developments of his time.  In this talk, I'll focus on two mathematical themes of Escher's work: i) symmetry and ii) representations of infinity, just barely scratching the surface of Escher's genius.

 

 

 


 

 

 

Joe Romano's primary research interest is gravitational-wave data analysis, specializing in searches for stochastic gravitational-wave backgrounds using data from ground-based or space-based interferometers or pulsar timing arrays. He was co-chair of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration Stochastic Sources Analysis Group from 2000-2006. His prior research experience includes fundamental problems in classical and quantum gravity.
