Questacon have word on a pretty exciting talk this Friday:

Simon Singh, best-selling author of ‘Fermat’s Last Theorem’ and ‘The Code Book’, will discuss his latest book ‘The Simpsons and Their Mathematical Secrets’. He will explain how a team of mathematically gifted writers have covered everything from calculus to geometry, from pi to game theory, and from infinitesimals to infinity in various episodes of The Simpsons. Singh will also discuss how the writers of Futurama have similarly made it their mission to smuggle deep mathematical ideas into the series.

Entry to this 30 minute presentation is free of charge. Entry to Questacon Galleries is at normal ticket prices.

This presentation is not recommended for children under the age of 12.
