Recording of Starring Math with Steven Strogatz, Sylvain Cappell, Dave Bayer, and Alex Kontorovich

This is a recording of a live-streamed event that took place on Monday, October 25, 2021.

Appropriate for ages 13 and up.

The series kicks off with an Oscar-winning movie about a Nobel-winning mathematician: A Beautiful Mind, starring Russell Crowe as the brilliant John Nash.  Joining Steve to discuss this film are professors Sylvain Cappell (New York University), who had many conversations with John Nash over the years and advised director Ron Howard on the making of the film, Dave Bayer (Columbia University), who was the film's math consultant and the mathematical hand model for Russell Crowe, and Alex Kontorovich (Rutgers University), who worked with Nash near the end of his life, when Kontorovich was an undergraduate at Princeton.

Though viewing each film is not required for participation, it is suggested that participants stream the movies independently prior to the event.
