Tom Banchoff emeritus professor of mathematics at Brown University
at the National Gallery Dublin 3pm Tuesday 14th Oct.

In 1975 Salvador Dali contacted mathematics professor Tom Banchoff to discuss how to "help people see things in new ways." Banchoff is one of America’s most respected mathematicians and specialises in the geometry of the 3rd and 4th dimensions. The relationship between the mathematician and artist continued for many years: art influencing maths and maths influencing art.
