"What is the purpose of Mathematics?" wondered generations of students desperately fixing the blackboard or their sheet. And we must admit that in our daily life, very few of us use them.
How to attract children to the science often regarded as too abstract? What are today's high-level mathematics? What are their practical use in society?
To answer these questions, our investigator meets researchers in pure mathematics, but also users of practical mathematical applications in the fields of computer science, biology and finance.
