Angelo Mingarelli, School of Mathematics and Statistics
In this presentation, Prof. Angelo Mingarelli will explore Leonardo da Vinci’s (1452-1519) various excursions into the realm of mathematics (arithmetic and geometry and their applications). He will examine how da Vinci spent close to 20 years trying to “square the circle” and solve such other unsolvable problems that, of course, he didn’t know were unsolvable at the time.
