VMath Special Productions and Other Events

In addition to recording the lectures at workshops, MSRI undertakes some special productions, usually with higher production values, for wider audiences. The first series of these productions to have begun is New Horizons in Undergraduate Mathematics. These videos will showcase great lecturers speaking on topics from current research that are both important, accessible and ready to enter the undergraduate curriculum.

The very first production in the New Horizons series is a pair of lectures on Gröbner Bases, by Bernd Sturmfels, of UC Berkeley. We anticipate future lectures on algebraic topology and its applications (Gunnar Carlsson, of Stanford) and Hyperbolic Geometry (Colin Adams, Williams). The New Horizons Series has been started through a generous grant from William Randolph Hearst III.

There will also be special productions about the philosophy and art of running a math circle featuring the organizers of the Cambridge Math Circle and the Berkeley Math Circle. The Mathematical Circle productions are funded by a generous grant from the Akamai Foundation.

This page also contains links to special events and lectures that are not part of any Programs or Workshops. For streaming videos and other media of our regular workshops, please visit our main video page at http://www.msri.org/web/msri/online-videos
