Arts and Mathematics are very old close friends. Ancient Greek Mathematicians explained how harmonious sounds are made. Renaissance artists discovered how to translate the scenes in the space onto a canvas. Through Mathematics, one can learn the most important tools to become a bigger person: Deduction and Intuition. In everyday life, we see, hear, and feel the Harmony.

### Mathematics of Planet Earth

#### BEXCO, Busan, Korea

#### 19: 00 – 19:50, July 1, 2013

Earth is a complex planet inside the solar system, with dynamic movements in the mantle, an atmosphere, and oceans. It supports life and is organized by humans. More recently the future of life is threatened by climate change and overexploitation of resources. Mathematics provides tools to discover the history of the Earth, explore its interior, study its climate, and understand its ecosystems. The lecture will highlight with examples the role of mathematics in discovering, understanding our planet, and the challenges to help protecting it.
