How do mathematicians think? This 60 minute documentary film features nine UK-based mathematicians offering insights into their thinking across a broad range of mathematical research fields.
Through explorations of their various thought processes, the film portrays mathematicians who are grappling with advanced mathematical ideas. We are presented with the concepts of imagination, intuition, and wonder, as well as rigorous mathematical deduction.
The film features Kevin Buzzard, Peter Donnelly, Tim Gowers, Martin Hairer, Roger Penrose, Caroline Series, Richard Thomas, Reidun Twarock and Karen Vogtmann.
Thinking Space is directed and produced by Heidi Morstang. The interviews were conducted and selected by Martin Hyland. The film has been commissioned by The London Mathematical Society as part of its 150th Anniversary Celebrations.
