The Mathematical Way of Understanding the World: Clocks and Chaos with David Mumford

2/10/2012; 71 minutes

A distinguished mathematician and highly recognized scholar, David Mumford is a leader in the field of pattern theory. He began his career in pure mathematics, specifically in studying the moduli spaces of curves and algebraic varieties. In the past two decades, Mumford has collaborated with computer scientists, psychologists, and neurobiologists and sought the "right" mathematics for describing the problems of perception. His work has focused on computer vision, pattern theory, and the mathematical modeling of shape. (#23349)
