WEST HAVEN, CONN. – Reza Sarhangi, a leading authority on how the seemingly unrelated worlds of mathematics, art, music and science overlap, will give a public lecture on Thursday, Oct. 18, at 3:30 p.m. at the University of New Haven, Dodds Hall Theater, 300 Boston Post Road.
Sarhangi is a professor of mathematics at Towson University and architect of an international series of “Bridges Conferences” that explore linking the worlds of mathematics, art, music and science.
The “Bridges Conference,” the largest mathematics and art interdisciplinary conference in the world, has traveled to cities in North America and Europe, and attracted participants from more than 30 countries.
The conference was created in 1998 and is conducted annually.
The lecture is free and open to the public.
