  • Special events

The LEFFEST will host the release of Cédric Villani’s book, Birth of a Theorem: A Mathematical Adventure. This work follows two years during which the French mathematician developed the work that earned him the Fields Medal, one of the most important Mathematics awards.  

The release will include a conversation with Villani, Jorge Buescu – mathematician, professor at the University of Lisbon and one of the book’s translators – and Carlos Fiolhais – physicist, professor at the University of Coimbra and director of Gradiva’s collection that Villani’s book is part of: “Fora de Colecção”.
