Math Monday: Math Mondays Goes to Bridges

by Glen Whitney



Last weekend, the Math Mondays crew traveled to Enschede, The Netherlands, to attend the annual Bridges conference. If you’re a serious math maker and don’t know about Bridges, you should. It’s a meeting that draws 200-400 people, all focused on the connections between mathematics and art, and the folks there create some seriously amazing objects that are often stunningly beautiful and which subsume often deep and surprising mathematical themes. Over the next several weeks Math Mondays will present a travelogue of sorts of the incredible objects — and people — you can encounter at Bridges. This week begins, though, with just a collection of images, from this year’s Bridges and earlier ones, to whet your appetite:
