Numberphile is made possible by support from the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI), based in Berkeley, California.
The best mathematicians from around the world come to MSRI – usually for a semester – to target hot research topics. Sort of like a mathematical “Dream Team” or “Avengers Assemble”!
You can read more about MSRI at the institute’s website.
In addition to reseach, MSRI is also involved with outreach and education.
In 2014 the institute joined forces with Numberphile, allowing us to continue making YouTube videos.
As a result, Numberphile will have opportunities to visit the centre and interview the visiting experts – a chance to pick their mathematical minds. We’ll continue showing that mathematics has a fascinating history but is also “alive” with new breakthroughs.
