‘El sabor de las Matemáticas: paisajes culinarios asombrosos’

Throughout the academic year 2016-2017, the Faculty of Medicine celebrates the 50th anniversary of the study of Mathematics in the UV. On Friday 28, commemorative events start with a conference by Mercedes Siles and the opening of an exhibition called “El sabor de las Matemáticas” (The taste of Mathematics).

The conference is also called ‘El sabor de las Matemáticas: paisajes culinarios asombrosos’ and it will be headed by Mercedes Siles, full Algebra professor at the University of Málaga. The act will start at 12:00 at the Assembly Hall of the Faculty of Mathematics. The conference goes through the adventure that meant thinking up culinary scenes with mathematics as a key ingredient to see how cooking and mathematics meet and how photograph gives posterity to the universe created after this meeting.

The conference is complemented with the exhibition “El sabor de las Matemáticas”, that will be opened when it finishes in the Assembly Hall at the Faculty of Pharmacy, and it will remain opened until the 12 December. The author of the exhibition is also Mercedes Siles, and she has counted on José Carlos García collaboration, cook with two Michelin stars, and Pedro Reyes Dueñas, mathematician and photographer. “El sabor de las Matemáticas” will show the close connection of the culinary dreams of maths and the mathematical universe of cooking.

“El sabor de las Matemáticas” was displayed for the first time in 2012 in Málaga, as a tribute to the centennial of the Real Sociedad Matemática Española (RSME) (Royal Spanish Mathematical Society). Since then, the exhibition has gone to Panamá, Santiago de Compostela, Granada, Cartagena, Córdoba, Pamplona and Almería. On 2014 the RSME gave it the signature of “Exposición RSME” (RSME Exposition). In November 2014, Mercedes Siles was an invited lecturer to the Math Encounters organized by the MoMath of New York.
