About this book

The VideoMath Festival is a collection of the juried mathematical videos presented at ICM '98, the International Congress of Mathematicians in Berlin. The videos are winners of a worldwide competition, in which the international jury evaluated their mathematical relevance, technical quality, and artistic imagination. The mathematical themes include problems in topology and geometry and their recent solutions, visualizations of classical ideas of Archimedes, Eratosthenes, Pythagoras, and Fibonacci, topics in high school mathematics, and applications of modern numerical methods to real world simulations. The videos target a general scientific audience interested in mathematical topics and their visualization. They are useful for initiating discussions, and to stimulate further research. The VideoMath collection is eminently suitable for school and university instruction. It provides an entertaining and informative look into current research in pure, applied and didactic mathematics.

Reviews

"In summary, VideoMath Festival is wonderfully entertaining and informative collection. ... This video's wide range of topics, varied levels of mathematical sophistication, and stunning graphics make it a must have for any institution and a welcome addition to any personal video library."

P.D. Shanahan, MAA Online book review column, Nov. 2000

"Among the many outstanding events of ICM '98 ... the VideoMath Festival was perhaps the most innovative. The 20 videos presented on this cassette are winners of a worldwide competition providing an entertaining and very informative look into current research in pure, applied and didactical mathematics. ... This video collection will definitely become a 'bestseller', and it is indeed highly recommended not only for school and university instruction but also for personal use of anyone interested in mathematics."

O. Ninnemann, Zentralblatt für Mathematik 909.1999

"... Wenn Mathematiker manchmal von der Ästhetik ihres Fachgebiets sprechen, schüttelt der Laie meist ungläubig den Kopf. Beim Betrachten dieses Videos können sich aber auch hartgesottene Zweifler der Eleganz der Mathematik nicht entziehen."

Neue Zürcher Zeitung, 20.1.1999
