Description:

Love, Mathematics, and “The X-Files”
Edward Frenkel and Chris Carter

In conversation

Frenkel, one of the 21st century’s leading mathematicians, works on one of the biggest ideas to come out of mathematics in the last 50 years: the Langlands Program. In his lyrical autobiography, he reveals a side of math we’ve never seen, suffused with all the metaphysical beauty and elegance of a work of art.  Known for his controversial erotic film about math, Frenkel believes a mathematical formula can carry a charge of love. Frenkel is joined by screenwriter and “The X-Files” creator Chris Carter to discuss how mathematics reaches to the heart of all matter, uniting us across culture, time, and space.
