New project "Oberwolfach meets IMAGINARY" started
2013년 9월 20일

The new project “Oberwolfach meets IMAGINARY” funded by the Klaus Tschira Stiftung started! It is a three years project (2013 - 2016) with several work plans focusing on the communication of modern mathematics and current mathematical research. The core idea of this new project is to connect the Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, one of the most important mathematical research institutes worldwide, and IMAGINARY.

Mathematicians carrying out research at the institute are invited to become “content providers”, in particular to write the so called “Snapshots of Modern Mathematics”, i. e. texts about their current research for a broader public.

Another work plan will focus on “Media from Oberwolfach” connected to modern mathematics. Images, films, simulations and other software programs will be taken and re-designed to be used for general math communication. We are planning to create more exhibits for our IMAGINARY exhibitions and also our museum partners.

And of course, the IMAGINARY platform will be further extended and adapted to host these new media, and also to invite other research insttitutes to participate. A special workplan will be carried out for the creation of an international network of math communicators and math content providers.

The project is designed to promote the understanding and appreciation of modern mathematics and mathematical research in the general public world-wide.

Today, February 7th 2018, is called e-day, because e is approximately 2.718, and this date is written 2/7/18 in some parts of the world. We prepared a toy-site listing the first 60.000 digits of e and help you find your birthday in it! We can even find your name within the digits of e, along with the complete works of William Shakespeare, the ending of Game of Thrones (spoiler alert), the full text of the Wikipedia from the year 2030 or what you’ll have tomorrow for breakfast…더 보기

The IMAGINARY journey began in 2007 at the Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach. Nobody could foresee (or had the slightest clue) that it would grow to be a 10 years+ journey of maths communication with an international, interactive, research-based and open-source core!더 보기
