Event Details

Snowflakes are natural jewels. Scientists have been trying to understand these gems falling from the sky for more than four hundred years. Today, we understand better this phenomenon, but many questions remain unsolved. Etienne Ghys would like to tell the story of snowflakes, but above all it will be an opportunity to show beautiful images.

This talk  will take place at TELUS World of Science, on the occasion of the current exhibition “A Mirror Maze : Numbers in Nature”. 

Etienne Ghys is a French mathematician, who works for the CNRS (National Centre for Scientific Research) in the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Lyon. He is involved into the dissemination of mathematics, through mathematical films and books. He will be in Vancouver on May 2 and 3.

A cocktail-reception will be given at the end of the talk.

Free event, in English. Please register on the Eventbrite.

Etienne Ghys will also give a Café des Sciences on May 3, a talk in French on the topic “Géométrie des grands réseaux”.
