Lecture: The Simpsons and Their Mathematical Secrets with Simon Singh

The Simpsons and Their Mathematical Secrets with Simon Singh. "It's the world's most popular TV series and nobody knows that there's this band of mathematicians at the heart of its writing team. People don't realise that they smuggle maths into the series." - Simon Singh In the first of two events for our Geek Day, the Somerset-born particle physicist and TV science guru justifies all those hours on the sofa with the TV controller. Whether it's Homer referencing Fermat's last theorem or Apu reciting Pi to its 40,000th decimal place, this fascinating lecture based on Singh’s bestselling book, explores a secret world of narcissistic numbers and maths riddles.
