Magic Numbers: Hannah Fry's Mysterious World of Ma

Season 1, Episode 1 of 3

Dr. Hannah Fry explores the mystery of math. Is it invented like a language, or is it discovered and part of the fabric of the universe? Dr. Hannah Fry explores the mystery of math. It underpins so much of our modern world that it's hard to imagine life without its technological advances, but where exactly does math come from? It's a question with which some of the most eminent mathematical minds have been wrestling. Dr. Eleanor Knox from King's College London believes it's discovered. Prof.Hiranya Peiris from University College London believes it's invented. Prof. Jim Gates from Brown University believes it's both. And, Prof.Brian Greene from Columbia University has no idea! The jury is very much divided.
