N2 - This is a collection of short extracts from the film “Thinking Space”, made by Heidi Morstang for The London Mathematical SocietyThe film features nine UK-based mathematicians offering insights into their mathematical thinking across a broad range of mathematical research fields. Through explorations of their various thought processes, the film portrays mathematicians who are grappling with advanced mathematical ideas. We are presented with the concepts of imagination, intuition, and wonder, as well as rigorous mathematical deduction. Please note that you are not necessarily expected to follow the mathematics being discussed: these extracts are about the mathematicians themselves, and the way they think.9 short films featuring on London Mathematical Society's website.Featuring:Kevin Buzzard, Professor of Pure Mathematics, Imperial College London;Peter Donnelly FRS, Professor of Statistical Science, University of Oxford, Director of the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics;Sir Tim Gowers FRS, Royal Society Research Professor, University of Cambridge;Martin Hairer FRS, Regius Professor of Mathematics, University of Warwick;Sir Roger Penrose FRS, Emeritus Rouse Ball Professor of Mathematics, University of Oxford;Caroline Series FRS, Emeritus Professor of Mathematics, University of Warwick;Richard Thomas FRS, Professor of Pure Mathematics, Imperial College London;Reidun Twarock, Professor of Mathematics, University of York;Karen Vogtmann, Professor of Pure Mathematics, University of Warwick.[Documentary film, HD; 3 mins x 9 films]
