Way, way back in the early days of Combinations and Permutations, epsiode 2 particularly, we discussed mathematics and its appearences in popular culture. I knew at the time we would miss whole swaths of instances and now thanks to Oliver Knill from Harvard I have proof. Knill has put together an amazing collection of Math in Movies, which I swear I will link to at least one more time before this is over, complete with clips from many movies. Here is an example of Math in Movies, there is that last link, from Monty Python’s Flying Circus we have Leibniz in Goal and Archimedes as Striker:
Make sure to check out the rest of the videos on Knill’s site, got even one more link in right here, to see just what we missed.
