Koko a talking gorilla( Visual )

3 editions published between 2001 and 2006 in English and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Koko, a Talking Gorilla is a documentary from 1978 that observes a zoo-born female gorilla in the fifth year of an experiment in human-simian communications. Dr. Penny Patterson has taught Koko hundreds of sign-language words in American Sign Language. Observing Koko's daily routine, her responses, her rejection of a new yellow sweater for her worn older red one, and her initiation of new subjects in conversation prompts more questions than it answers. What separates man from animal? The ability to construct a society, to speak, or to understand complex thought? No matter the conclusions, the film remains a compelling document of a fascinating experiment

Hard problems the road to the world's toughest math contest by George Paul Csicsery( Visual )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"About the extraordinarily gifted students who represented the United States in 2006 at the world's toughest math competition: the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO). It is the story of six American high school students who competed with 500 others from 90 countries in Ljubljana, Slovenia. The film shows the dedication and perseverance of these remarkably talented students, the rigorous preparation they undertake, and the joy they get out of solving challenging problems. It captures the spirit that infuses the mathematical quest at the highest level"--Container

Counting from infinity : Yitang Zhang and the twin prime conjecture( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In April 2013, a lecturer at the University of New Hampshire submitted a paper to the Annals of Mathematics. Within weeks word spread--a little-known mathematician, with no permanent job, working in complete isolation had made an important breakthrough towards solving the Twin Prime Conjecture. Yitang Zhang's techniques for bounding the gaps between primes soon led to rapid progress by the Polymath Group, and a further innovation by James Maynard. The film is a study of Zhang's rise from obscurity and a disadvantaged youth to mathematical celebrity ... interwoven with a history of the Twin Prime Conjecture as told by several mathematicians, many of whom have wrestled with this enormously challenging problem in Number Theory--Daniel Goldston, Kannan Soundararajan, Andrew Granville, Peter Sarnak, Enrico Bombieri, James Maynard, Nicholas Katz, David Eisenbud, Ken Ribet, and Terry Tao"--Container

The right spin( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1997 Michael Foale was the American astronaut on board the Russian space station Mir at the time of a failed docking attempt with an unmanned Progress supply ship. The supply ship collided with Mir, punching a hole in one of the modules of Mir, damaging a number of the solar panels, and inducing a tumbling motion that prevented the remaining solar panels from pointing toward the sun. Michael Foale provides his personal account of the experience, and explains the mathematical methods involved in rescuing Mir from what would almost certainly have been its demise had they been forced to evacuate and leave it tumbling without power until it burned up re-entering the earth's atmosphere
N is a number a portrait of Paul Erdős ; a documentary film ; the story of a wandering mathematician obsessed with unsolved problems( )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A man with no home and no job, Paul Erdös was the most prolific mathematician who ever lived. A wandering genius, Erdös, who died in 1996 at the age of 83, spent his life engaged in a cosmic struggle to uncover truths hidden by a stubborn adversary - God. In N is a Number he describes this metaphysical duel with the same wry humor he applied to politics, relationships and death. The documentary follows him through four countries to discover what makes mathematicians tick. N is a Number presents Erdös' mathematical quest, its personal and philosophical dimensions, and the tragic historical events that molded his life. Two animated sequences illustrate the kinds of problems Erdös pursued throughout his life. N is a Number is a one-hour documentary film made with support from the American Mathematical Society, Films Arts Foundation, the Heineman Foundation, the Mathematical Association of America and the National Science Foundations' Information Science Education Program. For the DVD additional scenes with Paul Erdös have been added
