The Movie Night was a great opportunity for PhD students from different areas of mathematics to meet in an informal and relaxed environment. There was pizza and beer for everyone followed by the movie session.
The movie Colors of Math shows a very inspiring perspective of mathematics through the personal view of remarkable contemporaneous mathematicians: Cedric Villani, Anatoly Fomenko, Aaditya V. Rangan, Günter Ziegler, Maxim Kontsevich and Jean Michael Bismut.

If you have an idea for a film, let us know! We are happy to organize another Movie Night![slideshow_deploy id=’342′]
