Is A Mathematical Proof Beautiful?

Is A Mathematical Proof Beautiful?


Is doing research in mathematics a creative process? When mathematicians talk of their subject as beautiful, what do they mean? What are their motivations? Their dreams? Their disappointments? Produced by Chrystal Cherniwchan, Azita Ghassemi and Prof. Jon Keating, this film is part of the Mathematical Ethnographies Project (2009). The focus is not on mathematics, but on the people who create and teach mathematics - on mathematicians.
