"PI day at PI"
(Pi day 2022 at Pauli Institute)
"same procedure as last year": a "hybrid" celebration of the international day of mathematics

statements of 5+1 eminent mathematicians

Introduction on “covid and math”, "Thumb times PI" estimates, and the war in Ukraine

Location: WPI Seminar Room (Vienna), Crete, Washington D.C, Shanghai, Beijing, Cambridge, Vienna Mon, 14. Mar (Opening: 16:00) - Wed, 15. Jun 22
On "PI day" (March 14 - 3.14) we celebrated the “International Day of Mathematics”
with an “online event”
where 5 male collegues (of the same 7 of 2020 and 2021) gave short statements,
as well as a courageous (Russian) female collegue who replaced 2 men,

with a “prologue” by the PI director and an epilogue with a Pie.

Watch the video at:

Remark: In 2020 the video was a spontaneous improvised idea the day before PI day,
when we had to cancel the planned “presence event”. In 2021 we had to do/plan the same.
Now in 2022 our collegues from USA and China still faced severe travel restrictions.
“Next year in Jerusalem"...

Thanks to Alfio, Doron, Shi, Zhennan, Claude, Sofia and Birgit & Max for the videos,
thanks to Inma & Walter & Simon for technical help.
