The golden ratio is a fascinating number, but how much of what you read (or believe) is true—and what are the common myths? Join us as Stanford mathematician, award-winning author, and NPR “Math Guy” Keith Devlin examines the evidence and separates fact from fiction.
Presented by Keith Devlin, with a special introduction by Jim Simons, founder of Renaissance Technologies and winner of the Veblen Prize in Geometry.
MoMath was proud to present Keith Devlin as the speaker for our September, 2011 Math Encounters event. Math Encounters is a new public presentation series celebrating the spectacular world of mathematics and presented by the Simons Foundation and the Museum of Mathematics.
