Speaker: Dr Mario Livio (Internationally known astrophysicist and best-selling author)

Title: The Golden Ratio 

Abstract: The number 1.618 known as “The Golden Ratio,” has fascinated scholars since antiquity. Some even considered it to be divine, and others were obsessed with it. In this talk I will describe the incredible history of this number, and its uncanny appearances, true and false, in natural phenomena, in the arts, in mathematics, and in human-created artifacts.
