For only the third time in its history the Royal Institution Christmas Lectures will be on mathematics. Marcus du Sautoy, who was inspired by the first mathematics lectures given by Christopher Zeeman in 1978, will be presenting The Number Mysteries. They will be broadcast on Channel Five.
The previous Christmas lectures on Mathematics were given by Ian Stewart in 1997.
There’s an interview with Marcus du Sautoy in today’s Guardian called A prime example.
