## Probability Theory: The Logic of Science

Going beyond the conventional mathematics of probability theory, this study views the subject in a wider context. It discusses new results, along with applications of probability theory to a variety of problems. The book contains many exercises and is suitable for use as a textbook on graduate-level courses involving data analysis. Aimed at readers already familiar with applied mathematics at an advanced undergraduate level or higher, it is of interest to scientists concerned with inference from incomplete information.

## Can Mathematical Invention be Automated?

Bruno Buchberger, Distinguished Lecture Series, Cheriton School of Computer Science, University of Waterloo - June 16, 2011

The invention of mathematical concepts, theorems and methods is deemed to be one of the most challenging intellectual activities.

Mathematics is the essential source of automation in the innovation spiral from science via technology to economy. Hence, automation of the mathematical invention process is not only a philosophical question but a question of highest practical and societal relevance.

In this talk, the current state of research on the automation of mathematical invention will be illustrated and discussed.

## What is Math About?: Masao Morita at TEDxKyoto 2012

Kyoto Mathematician Morita Masao unlocks the hidden mysteries and real-world applications of numbers.

Masao Morita

Independent scholar

The word "mathematics" may delight some people and terrify others. Masao Morita, while still enrolled with the Tokyo University Mathematics Department in 2010, began his explorations as an independent researcher by founding the Kai An Mathematics Dojo in Fukuoka. In the years since, Masao has been continuing his independent research outside the university system, conducting practical workshops that explore the concept of "thinking under constraints that go beyond our thoughts". His main research interests include Category Theory and the Theory of Computation. Masao seeks to fuse the theoretic and practical aspects of mathematics, and to share the insights they offer with the world. To this end, Masao regularly conducts unique "mathematics concerts" around the country, both conducting and performing in a demonstration of Mathematics that will leave you breathless.

## Stylish Mathematics

Dan Rockmore, External Professor, Santa Fe Institute

June 13, 2007

All too often we see mathematics and the arts as two different sides of the science/humanities coin. In this talk Rockmore explores a place where the two come naturally together through new research. In today's world in which almost all aspects of life are brought to the common medium of the computer, it is now possible to quantify and extract the style of an artist via computation. Examples are gleaned from the literary, visual, and dance arts, and include applications to the problem of authentication.
