The film A Beautiful Mind was shown during this year's Tribeca Film Festival, in celebration of the 2001 Best Picture Oscar winner's tenth anniversary.  Following the screening, Prof. David Bayer, who served as a mathematics consultant during the making of the film, participated in a panel discussion entitled “The Art, Science and Math of A Beautiful Mind.”  Read about the discussion here, or watch below.



Prof. Bayer is the coauthor of Macaulay, a computer algebra system for computations in algebraic geometry and commutative algebra, and holds a U.S. Patent (with N. Karmarkar and J. Lagarias) for a method and apparatus for optimizing system operational parameters. His research interests include combinatorial commutative algebra, algebraic geometry, and computer algebra.
