y^{2} = x^{3} + a x^{2} + xwhere a=486662 and the arithmetic is done in the field Z^{p} with prime
p=2^{255}19 = 57896044618658097711785492504343953926634992332820282019728792003956564819949.It turns out that one can do arithmetic on such curves in the same way as on integers.
Direct Media Links: Webm, Ogg Ipod, Quicktime. About the movie. Best Quote from the movie: "People are overlooked for a variety of reasons and perceived flaws: age, appearance, personality. Mathematics cuts right through that".  November 9, 2016: the elections from yesterday illustrate how powerful statistical models can be. Allan Lichtman has a system which predicted a Trump win. The system does not analyze personalities nor policies nor opinions. It simply looks at a highdimensional value function obtained statistically from previous elections, then uses this to predict the future. It turned out that in these presidential elections, the polls were misleading and that Lichtman's system was more accurate than what polls or pundits predicted. Its a bit like in the movie "Moneyball", were experts were shown to be fooled by things like "how a player looks or whether he throws funny". What counted in baseball in the long term is statistically how high a player scores in a parameter space. In this case, the model does not look at the actual politicians but at the party structure. The data come from previous US elections. The players are the parties. It is therefore not the statistical data of the players were compared but the statistical data of the political parties, completely detached from any person or policy. Lichtman's system does not take into account the personality of the candidates, nor the political agendas, not how likable or successful they are. Its just the raw analysis about the situation of the two parties. A parameter for example is how strong a third party candidate is. And this analysis is based solely from previous election cases. This is the power of statistics: Make a high dimensional model from previous cases, then use the model to predict the outcome of an event. Its a bit like datafitting but of course much more subtle as Lichtman, in order to build the system probably had to look at hundreds of parameters and then weed out the most relevant ones. Its like building a value system for chess game situations. Having a good value system is the key to predict the win or loss of a party. 
Kolmogorov: "The theory of probability as a mathematical discipline can and should be developed from axioms in exactly the same way as geometry and algebra." 


Nick mentioned Euler diagrams when we looked at Venn diagrams and sent the following
explaining the difference between Venn and Euler diagrams. I'm actually
not convinced why one should distinguish cases, where the intersection is
empty or not with a different notion. One can perfectly well just
work with Venn diagrams alone. Maybe it could be useful when building
data structures. The questions which appear in set theory are also of rather philosophical nature: how can we be sure to have a solid foundation of mathematics. How do we map all truth? Does infinity really exist? Is our universe finite? Do we really need to model nature with structures needing infinity. Apropos Cosmos, there was just a new book published by Ian Stewart. Calculating the Cosmos. The New York times has an announcement.

It is the Hammer and Chisle versus Rising Sea approach. It has been mentioned in the McLarty article (which is an iconic document by itself) from which I take this. The allegory compare the theorem with a nut which needs to be opened (one even says in colloquial language: cracking a nut).
Hammer and Chisle principle  Rising Sea principle 

The Hammer and Chisle principle is to put the cutting edge of the chisel against the shell and strike hard. If needed, begin again at many different points until the shell cracksand you are satisfied. Grothendieck puts this poetically by comparing the theorem to a nut to be opened. The mathematician uses the Hammer and Chisle to reach "the nourishing flesh protected by the shell".  The Rising Sea principle is to submerge the problem by vast theory, going well beyond the results originally to be established. Grothendieck imagines to immerse the nut in some softening liquid until the shell becomes more flexible. After weeks and months, by mere hand pressure, the shell opens like a perfectly ripened avocado!
