Marcus du Sautoy, OBE
I am the Simonyi Professor for the Public Understanding of Science and Professor of Mathematics.
My work seeks to understand the world of symmetry by using a classical tool from number theory: zeta functions. It involves methods from a wide spectrum of mathematics: p-adic Lie groups, model theory, algebraic geometry, analytic methods and more.
