Is Math Sexy?
@Cedric_Villani in his talk adds a fourth component: Mathematics.
Paris has more mathematicians than any other cities in the world, and more streets named after mathematicians.
So, why is math so sexy?
Math may be abstract, but not dull and not only about computing. It is about reasoning, and improving our core activity. It is about imagination and finding the truth.
8 years ago, when we crafted the GaBI curriculum for physicians, we decided to also include a remarkable course called “Mathematical Modeling in Biomedicine”. This course trains our physicians to use differential equations to define mechanisms in the body. It thus enables physicians to examine various mechanistic hypotheses by using mathematics instead of real patients. The course offers its graduates the opportunity to advance medical science and make medical breakthroughs speedily, without being limited and delayed by doing only clinical trials on human patients.
