In this inspiring talk, the mathematician Edward Frenkel, a true mystic scientist, speaks to the beauty and elegance of mathematics. He explores a possible path to the unification of mathematics and traces this question back to the nature of reality.
This was a public lecture given in July 2019 during the String Math Conference held at the Uppsala University in Sweden, founded in 1477, and the oldest university in Northern Europe.
