Mathematics is the study of patterns, numbers, quantities, shapes, and space using logical processes, rules, and symbols.  Mathematicians seek out patterns, formulate new conjectures, and establish truth by rigorous deduction from appropriately chosen axioms and definitions.  Mathematicians investigate patterns, formulate new conjectures, and determine truth by drawing conclusions from axioms and definitions.   A mathematician can be an artist, scientist, engineer, inventor or straightforwardly, an independent thinker.   He/she is commonly more than one of these at once.

"Ethno-mathematician" Ron Eglash is the author of African Fractals, a book that examines the fractal patterns underpinning architecture, art and design in many parts of Africa. By looking at aerial-view photos -- and then following up with detailed research on the ground -- Eglash discovered that many African villages are purposely laid out to form perfect fractals, with self-similar shapes repeated in the rooms of the house, and the house itself, and the clusters of houses in the village, in mathematically predictable patterns. ......................................................................................

The above picture shows a fractal pattern.  A fractal is a shape made from repeating one pattern on different scales.  This repetition often makes the shape appear irregular. 

As he puts it: "When Europeans first came to Africa, they considered the architecture very disorganized and thus primitive. It never occurred to them that the Africans might have been using a form of mathematics that they hadn't even discovered yet."

His other areas of study are equally fascinating, including research into African and Native American cybernetics, teaching kids math through culturally specific design tools (such as the Virtual Breakdancer applet, which explores rotation and sine functions), and race and ethnicity issues in science and technology. Eglash teaches in the Department of Science and Technology Studies at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in New York, and he recently co-edited the book Appropriating Technology, about how we reinvent consumer tech for our own uses


Ron Eglash: Mathematician
Ron Eglash is an ethno-mathematician: he studies the way math and cultures intersect. He has shown that many aspects of African design -- in architecture, art, even hair braiding -- are based on perfect fractal patterns.

About this talk

'I am a mathematician, and I would like to stand on your roof.' That is how Ron Eglash greeted many African families he met while researching the fractal patterns he’d noticed in villages across the continent.

Typically, the study of math is divided into two major categories: pure mathematics or applied mathematics. Pure mathematical research involves significant mathematical exploration and the creation of original mathematics. Pure mathematics seeks to develop mathematical knowledge for its own sake rather than for any immediate practical use. Applied mathematics seeks to expand mathematical techniques for use in science and other fields or to use techniques in other fields to make contributions to the field of mathematics.  Boundaries between pure mathematics and applied mathematics do not always exist.
