Mysterious Patterns – the accidental art of prime numbers…… John Andrews

Mathematicians have been studying prime numbers for thousands of years, but nobody has yet found a formula to predict them.  Believe it or not, banks use prime numbers to protect your account every time you use a cash machine.

Join John Andrews for a fascinating presentation describing the history of prime number and their importance in mathematics and other fields.

He will also explain how the images for the accompanying exhibition were constructed and their connection with prime numbers.  This talk is aimed at a general audience with no background in mathematics as well as students studying art and/or mathematics taking in indices, pattern recognition, number factorisation, elementary trigonometry and graphs

John Andrews is a mathematical physicist living in Tetbury.

He began his career as a research scientist in the electricity supply industry, and later lectured in mathematics and physics at Bristol and Oxford Universities.

He now splits his time between his two passions: the science of global warming and how to combat it, and prime numbers.

He is a joint author of the student textbook “Energy Science” with Nick Jelley; the 4th edition of which is due out in November this year
