Wild Geometry

Synopsis
Recording of a lecture given by Professor Nigel Ray as part of the London Mathematical Society’s Popular Lecture Series. If tame geometry is epitomised by familiar shapes of everyday life, wild geometry is more mysterious, including such intricate objects as the Artin-Fox arc, the Alexander horned sphere and Antoine’s necklace.
