The art of mathematics - The mathematics of arts

Many of my friends, who are less familiar with mathematics, often ask me what exactly my research includes. What am I doing when not teaching? How do we mathematicians spend our time at different conferences? Is it even possible to do “research” in mathematics? Well, it is not an easy task to give relevant answers to all these questions…you can read about me – the mathematician – here.


“Mathematics is a language with which neither imprecise nor vague ideas can be expressed.”

(Henri Poincaré)


“Music creates order out of chaos: for rhythm imposes unanimity upon the divergent, melody imposes continuity upon the disjointed, and harmony imposes compatibility upon the incongruous. “

(Yehudi Menuhin)


“The style is the man himself – said Buffon. Judged on style, many monkeys write on Earth. “

(Juhász Gyula, poet)
