Mathematicians and their problems...


Mathematicians love problems. They love those whose resolution reveals new structures, new objects of the mathematical world that they build, but believe they discover.
    He will chat about problems, solved or not, that have been important these last years: geometrisation of three manifolds, geometry of random objects, quantum chaos, P=NP. Going beyond technicalities, he will try to explain the general framework of these results, as well as explain the complex relation of mathematics with other sciences.
