Exploring the Frontiers of Mathematics

Mathematics is the oldest science and still making new discoveries. Meet four UC Davis mathematicians on the leading edge. From quantum computers to the movement of subatomic particles and microorganisms swimming through fluids, it’s a journey that takes in ancient Greece, the lining of your lungs, lots of knots, dead ends in 19th century physics and artificial intelligence.
