Frames Of Mind

The 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.
