The Great Math Mystery Documentary New 2015 HD

NOVA leads viewers on a mathematical mystery tour–a provocative exploration of math’s astonishing power across the centuries. We discover math’s signature in the swirl of a nautilus shell, the whirlpool of a galaxy, and the spiral in the center of a sunflower. Math was essential to everything from the first wireless radio transmissions to the successful landing of rovers on Mars. But where does math get its power? Astrophysicist and writer Mario Livio, along with a colorful cast of mathematicians, physicists, and engineers, follow math from Pythagoras to Einstein and beyond, all leading to the ultimate riddle: Is math an invention or a discovery? Humankind’s clever trick, or the language of the universe? Whether we think we’re good with numbers or not, we all use math in our daily lives. The Great Math Mystery sheds fascinating light on how math works in our brains and ponders the ultimate mystery of why it works so well when decoding the universe.

My balls dont seem to hang the same let alone the idea if they even drop at the same rate

._. Having to deal with this video all because of my teacher made us do a sheet on these examples

Really misrepresenting mathematics in most of the cases. The film creates confusion between computation and mathematics.

The last part about "mathematics not working well for weather prediction" is really wrong. Weather is described perfectly using mathematics. The problem there is just that the atmosphere is highly chaotic system and it's both computationally intractable and limited in the precision with which we can measure its state. The fact that small errors in computation/measurement can grow exponentially has nothing to do with the ability of a system to be described mathematically.

All in all the indirect impact math has had has to be huge. Even in those fields where math was describe as not having been particularly useful. May not be that useful in the speculative stock markets directly, but the businesses that the stock markets earn their money with most likely employ math a lot. The data that meteorology use uses and the technology it uses to peer down on the actual global weather patterns exist in a large part because of math. Even though it sometimes can get by with imprecision engineering depends on math a great deal. In that regard this program appeared to be looking for ways to downplay math to satisfy those who find simple math hard. Using PC to satisfy those who hate PC, strange stuff man.

So many adds tho…

Wish I saw this in school, might've made me more interested in maths.

wtf, you use imperial units in the JPL? no wonder you can't get to the moon anymore.

7.50min: this is kind of bullshit, we don't know if pi's decimals digits have repeated sequences

The girl reminds me of Boxxy.

David H. Koch foundation? Really? The same foundation that is a part of the giant Koch machine that denies climate change?

I am hard

It's how we describe the universe. Mathematics explains things well because it shows what we use to explain the universe from things we've observed. We basically put all these pieces into the puzzle of mathematics starting from algebra and continuing into more difficult mathematics all based on previously solved hypotheses. So basically we created an idea of counting at first, then moved on to how algebra worked into that, and then it branched off into things about shapes or other stuff and it just gets too complex to explain in a single youtube comment.

It's descriptive… it describes the universe because it's a description of the universe.

Thought we were going to see logicians talk about axioms and how they are decided, not a bunch of physics applications.

really good documentary

Le Reddit army has arrived.

REDDIT ARMY ATTACK!

Reddit sent me here

Very interesting, thank you so much.
