SUMMARY:Simplicity: Ideals of Practice in Mathemat
ics and the Arts, New York, U.S.A.
DTSTART;VALUE=DATE:20130403
DTEND;VALUE=DATE:20130405
LOCATION:New York, U.S.A.
DESCRIPTION:Lectures by and conversations among tw
enty-five mathematicians, artists, art historians,
philosophers, and architects together with screen
ings of artist's films by Andy Goldsworthy (New Yo
rk premiere), David Hammons, Richard Serra, Andy W
arhol, and William Wegman. To find "criteria of
simplicity" was the goal of David Hilbert's recent
ly discovered twenty-fourth problem on his renowne
d list of open problems given at the 1900 Internat
ional Congress of Mathematics in Paris. At the sam
e time, simplicity and economy of means are powerf
ul impulses in the creation of artworks. Recogni
zing the aesthetic nature of Hilbert's question, t
his conference aims to focus on criteria of simpli
city in mathematics that are informed by perspecti
ves from art and architecture, the philosophy and
history of mathematics, and current mathematical p
ractice. For more information and to register, p
