Gresham College - The Mathematics of Coincidence

We regularly hear of amazing coincidences – people winning the lottery twice, or getting a phone call from a long-lost friend just when you were thinking about them. Is this telepathy? Is there a greater power at work when someone survives seven lightning strikes? There can be terrible consequences from the misunderstanding of coincidence. This lecture was recorded by Sarah Hart on 5th March 2024 at Barnard's Inn Hall, London Sarah is Gresham Professor of Geometry. She is also Professor Emerita of Mathematics at Birkbeck, University of London.
