SPOTLIGHT
Celebrating math, miracles and a movie
An advance screening of "The Man Who Knew Infinity" at The Carter Center was a chance to celebrate Emory's connection to the film -- Ken Ono, Asa Griggs Candler Professor of Math, served as an associate producer and the math consultant. Focused on the life of Indian mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan, who said his math formulas came to him as visions from a Hindu goddess, the film opens nationwide April 29.

Quote

 

"There is nothing wrong with the recognition that we are apes -- smart ones perhaps, but apes nonetheless. ... We are endowed with the mental powers and imagination to get under the skin of other species. The more we succeed, the more we will realize that we are not the only intelligent life on earth."
Frans de Waal, New York Times, April 8, 2016
