The 13th Antonie F. Monna Memorial Lecture: Yakov Eliashberg (Stanford)

Title:  Introduction to Flexible Mathematics

Abstract:
There are two directions of explorations in Mathematics. The rigidity side concerns with finding constraints and restrictions, while on the flexible side mathematicians are developing techniques for new constructions which test the limits of what is possible. The discovered properties are often unexpected and counter-intuitive.
