How I came to hate Math

By

Olivier Peyon

So math has always bored you, you’ve always accepted you were bad at it. In short, you’ve always hated math! It would be laughable if math hadn’t become of such paramount importance in our world: Apple, Google, Goldman Sachs are all based on algorithms and mathematical formulas. How is it that mathematics still holds such disfavor even as it now runs the world? Taking us on a journey around the world to meet the greatest mathematicians, notably Cédric Villani (2010 Fields Medal award), “How I Came to Hate Math” tells the story of how mathematics has changed our world for the better… and sometimes for the worse.
