About this Lecture
M x M x M = Music x Mathematics x Paintings (= Malerei in German) is a presentation of three arts in one evening.
Music (here classical music) is a challenge for our brain, whereas what one might call emotional intelligence, whereas mathematics needs rational intelligence, a quite different part of our brain. The flip between these two arts is a sort of interval training for our brain. Paintings have some similarity with both other arts, it is a composition (with colors instead of notes) and there is always a geometric input. In the M x M x M programs, the geometric content is always related to the mathematical content helping to understand the mathematics easier.
In the present program, the mathematical part deals with two a priory very different topics, the golden ratio occurring in art and architecture and the Fibonacci numbers occurring at many places in nature. Both concepts will be explained slowly to non-mathematicians and the surprising main results will be that these completely different mathematical objects are two sides of the same coin.
Art by Luitgard Ilg
Music by Lukas Larisch (Piano) and Matthias Kreck (Cello), also responsible for the mathematics
About the Knowing How to See Exhibition - January 14-25, 2018
The starting point of this exhibition is to translate the language and the insights of mathematics into photographic images and vice versa.
Mathematics provides a language to describe the patterns and structures upon which our life is constructed. Moreover, image composition also follows some laws which have a mathematical basis. Hence, mathematics can lay the basis of photography. Art, however, can go further; it expresses the true human. In this sense, photography is a bridge between art and mathematics.

Lukas Larisch, a KAUST Ph.D. student in Computer Science working under the supervision of Professor Gabriel Wittum, won the PACE 2017 Parameterized Algorithms and Computational Experiments Challenge. The award ceremony that took place in Vienna, Austria, at the beginning of September 2017 has been held during the ALGO Congress at the International Symposium on Parameterized and Exact Computation (IPEC 2017).
