Bach Ach, ich sehe, itzt, da ich zur Hochzeit gehe (Ah, I see, now as I go to the marriage) BWV 162

Professor Alain Goriely Statutory Professor of Mathematical Modelling, University of Oxford

Mathematics and the Brain

The science: Can mathematics explain the brain? No-one is entirely sure, but Professor Alain Goriely definitely thinks it’s worth trying. He explores how applied mathematics can help us learn more about the effect of brain injuries and neuro-degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s.

The music: In this cantata, Bach imagines going to a wedding, although he’s initially concerned with the pre-marital angst of the participants, rather than having a party. It’s all resolved by the end, however, with a journey from doubt to certainty and a celebratory final chorale.

In partnership with Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford
