Inspiration, Creativity & Ramanujan


ICTP will host a video production by students from the Trieste secondary school "G. Corsi" with the participation of ICTP scientists: Atish Dabholkar, Najmeh Foroozani, Obinna Kennedy Idu, Muhammad Nawaz Qaisrani, Fernando Villegas and Don Zagier.
The video production is inspired by the life of Srinivasa Ramanujan (1887 – 1920) and reinterprets a few aspects of the life of the Indian mathematician and autodidact who lived under the British Raj. The students have interviewed the scientists with fundamental questions regarding inspiration, creativity and where does an idea come from. Essential questions for young minds.

"Ramanujan" will be screened on 9 March 2017 in the Budinich Lecture Hall at 11:00 and at 17:30.
You are all most welcome to attend any of the two screenings.
