Science FACTion - 20031


These entwined courses introduce students to the beauty and power of mathematics and show how mathematical ideas have influenced literary science fiction. Students examine how concepts of combinatorics, infinity, topology, logic, computability, number theory and cryptography are both interrelated and linked to the most influential science fiction of the past 40 years: a lovely look at the intertwinings of the nature of language and the language of nature.
