The Man Who Saved Geometry

Description

This documentary follows the life and times of geometer Donald Coxeter on his journey to the last geometry conference he would attend - to Budapest in the summer of 2002, when he was 95 years old. There Coxeter delivered the opening address, offering a new and elegant proof for a theorem about "four mutually tangent circles," a subject which finds application in data-mining technology. Coxeter is widely regarded as the man who kept geometry alive in the past half century.
