Beautiful Equations – BBC

“Beautiful Equations” is an extraordinary documentary about some of the most known equations and how did they changed the world. This documentary produced by BBC takes us in a journey through this wonderful world of mathematics.

You may think that math isn’t for you, however the main role is played by an artist and writer (Matt Collings)… This means that every equation is explained in order for he understand therefore we can also understand. I had a lot of fun watching this documentary and learnt a lot from a wide range of subjects. I just had to share this after posting a mathematical post :p Have a nice day! 😀

A Universe From Nothing – lecture

This summer I finally managed to saw the movie “The Unbelievers”, a movie that I highly recommend (whatever your beliefs might be). After I watch it I made some research about Lawrence Krauss because I had never heard his name. I found a lecture he gave about the Universe and the current theories about it.

Krauss is Foundation Professor of the School of Earth and Space Exploration at Arizona State University and director of its Origins Project. [1] He is a theoretical physicist who beseech explanations for cosmology. Particularly devoted to the themes of the begin of the Universe and it’s ending.
I’m fascinated about astrophysics and I have studied a bit of it (through minutephysichs, ed.ted and wikipedia) so for me it was an awesome way of giggling and have a good time learning more and remember about dark energy, dark matter, cosmic microwave background, etc… [2]
All this for saying that you might want to study a little (e.g. wikipedia), in order to fully understand the talk.
Hope you enjoy it and learn something!
