Adding solutions, solving crimes: the reality behind Numb3rs (TV series)

Friday 24 February, 14:00-16:00
GC601, Graduate Centre

An insight on mathematics and law from the famous TV series Numb3rs.

We use mathematics every day, to find the weather forecast, measure timeā€¦ and we can use it also to analyse crime, find patterns and predict behaviours. This is a participative workshop where you are going to find the answer to these questions: Can mathematics help to solve a crime? How could law and mathematics be linked? Join us and feel like a detective analysing crime through the series Numb3rs.

Speakers: Diego Millan Berdasco (QMUL) and Maria Pilar Loredo (ICASAL, USAL)
