Mathematics has been the driving force in astronomy and cosmology since the ancient Babylonians, from Kepler’s influence on Newton to Einstein’s theory of General Relativity, which was inspired by irregularities in the motion of Mars. Introduced by mathematician Hannah Fry, former Christmas Lecturer Ian Stewart will be your guide to the maths of the Universe.
Ian Stewart is an Emeritus Professor in the Mathematics Department at Warwick University and is best known for his popular science writing on mathematical themes. He has published more than 80 books and delivered the 1997 Ri CHRISTMAS LECTURES, when he brought a live tiger into the theatre.
