M3M3 is an event for non-mathematicians, allowing them to take part in an experience
that addresses two extreme parts of the brain: the emotional side needed to enjoy
classical music and the rational side needed to digest mathematics. Yes, you heard
right — digest mathematics. The mathematician Matthias Kreck, professor at Bonn
University in Germany, will explain and prove a mathematical theorem — Fermat’s
Two Square Theorem — in such a way that everybody will feel the joy of rigorous
statements and arguments. The paintings, which explain some of the mathematical
statements, combine both sides as they are at the same time emotional and geometric. Matthias Kreck will also play the Cello accompanied on the Piano by the mathematician
Marek Kaluba, asistant professor at the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań.
The paintings are by Luitgard Ilg from Mainz, Germany.
