Incontri con la Scienza - A mathematical bloomsday walk with Piergiorgio Odifreddi

Event in Italian

 

Join us for a mathematical journey (in Italian) through the Dublin pathways of Ulysses. Italian mathematician and writer Piergiorgio Odifreddi returns to Dublin for an evening dedicated to the pursuit of numbers in Joyce’s work. With particular reference to the Ithaca chapter in Ulysses, Odifreddi will discuss Mr Bloom’s fascination for orders of magnitude, distances, the squaring of the circle, kinetics, astronomical numbers and we will discover that in Joyce’s masterpiece there is much more mathematics than we would expect.
