Simon Singh, author of Fermat's Last Theorem and Big Bang, talks about his latest book, which explores the mathematical themes hidden in The Simpsons. While many are familiar with The Simpsons, few people realize that its team of mathematically gifted writers have used the show to explore everything from calculus to geometry, from pi to game theory, and from infinitesimals to infinity. Singh will also discuss how the writers of Futurama have similarly made it their mission to smuggle deep mathematical ideas into the series.
