IMAGINARY - through the eyes of mathematics


In the late November, P. G. Demidov Yaroslavl State Univercity will host the international interactive exhibition “IMAGINARY - through the eyes of mathematics”. Exhibition events will be held on the basis of the Delone Laboratory of Discrete and Computational Geometry in cooperation with the Government of the Yaroslavl region, scientific and educational association “Upper Volga Research Center”.

The exhibition concept was born at the world famous international research center Mathematische Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach (Germany). In Russia, the first exhibition was held in Moscow during the Russian-German Year of Education, Science and Innovation 2011/2012. Within two weeks over 7000 people visited the exhibition, which indicates the high level of interest and popularity of the event among the Russian public.

At the exhibition, viewers will see the images created by the leading mathematicians and renowned artists, works of art which have arisen on the basis of three simple variables x, y and z, which are the embodiment of beauty, grace and magnetism of mathematics. But visitors can not only enjoy the “canvases” of famous mathematicians, but also to become active participants: the guests of the “IMAGINARY” exhibition will have a unique opportunity to create “work of mathematical art” with their own hands and special computer programs. Thus, even a novice in the field of mathematics and natural sciences can discover the beauty and aesthetics of the standard mathematical functions.

Our guides from the students of the Mathematics and Computer Science Faculties of the Yaroslavl State University will lead you around the exhibition,  show and explain the content of the exhibits in an accessible and fun way, and also help in the use of computer programs.

“IMAGINARY” exhibition  will run daily in the Yaroslavl State University 

from 23.11.12 to 09.12.12 from 10:00 to 18:00 at: 

Assembly hall of the YSU main building (Sovetskaya St., 14).
