Mathematical magic (a trip through science)

Fundació Catalana per a la Recerca i la Innovació | FCRI

Theatre show

Fun and mistery guaranteed: you'll see the magic of mathematics with your own eyes and feel it in yours hands… and your mobile will perform it!

Attendees to this show will be amazed by magic tricks, surprises and awesome effects that look impossible, yet are based upon mathematical principles. In some cases, their secret will be revealed to pinpoint the importance of the mathematical principle involved. Fernando Blasco (mathematician) and Miquel Duran (chemist), with the help of undergraduate students, will perform a variety of games using mobile devices. For a final trick, mathemagic will be performed by the very attendees, who will realize that what looks impossible happens in front of their own eyes.
