Volumes, the MoMath book club
Wednesday, January 19 at 6:30 pm ET (New York)
Volumes continues! Join Distinguished Visiting Professor Steven Strogatz and author Karen Olsson for an online discussion of Olsson's The Weil Conjectures.
The Weil Conjectures begins as a historical account of the Weil siblings ― Simone, a social activist and mystic, and André, a mathematician. However, the book quickly expands in scope, also becoming a meditation on creativity and the author's own years studying math. As Olsson grapples with the intellectual obsessions of these singular French thinkers, she revisits her own obsessions and the way in which her path from math major to writer illustrates the odd detours of life that sometimes lead to discovery.
