Mathematics and sex are deeply intertwined. From using mathematics to reveal patterns in our sex lives, to using sex to prime our brain for certain types of problems, to understanding them both in terms of the evolutionary roots of our brain, Dr Clio Cresswell shares her insight into it all.

Dr Clio Cresswell is a Senior Lecturer in Mathematics at The University of Sydney researching the evolution of mathematical thought and the role of mathematics in society. Born in England, she spent part of her childhood on a Greek island, and was then schooled in the south of France where she studied Visual Art. At eighteen she simultaneously discovered the joys of Australia and mathematics, following on to win the University Medal and complete a PhD in mathematics at The University of New South Wales. Communicating mathematics is her field and passion. Clio has appeared on panel shows commenting, debating and interviewing; authored book reviews and opinion pieces; joined breakfast radio teams and current affair programs; always there highlighting the mathematical element to our lives. She is author of Mathematics and Sex.

TEDxSydney is an independently organised event licensed from TED by longtime TEDster, Remo Giuffré (REMO General Store) and organised by his General Thinking network of fellow thinkers and other long time collaborators.

TEDxSydney has become the leading platform and pipeline for the propagation of Australian ideas, creativity, innovation and culture to the rest of the world.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

EnjgineДень назадAnd you see

TheHutch 11День назадThat’s a video title I never thought I’d see

Fulfilled @Work2 дня назадMathematics appeared everywhere 2000 years ago? What about the Ishango Bone? 20.000 BCE it has been found, it seems that it is Mathematics... or the Moscow Papyrus something like 2000 BCE, more than 4000 years ago? Mathematics seem to originate from Africa doesn't it?

Dux4 дня назадyou got me at mathematics

wulphstein5 дней назадIf you're thinking about math during foreplay, there's something wrong with you.

Jeremy Cornwell7 дней назадWomen are bad at math/finance?

Fabiano Araujo12 дней назадI bet . She is sigle. Nobody desires her.

JD Tatum16 дней назадif this lady ever discovered coding....

Den-Tin Palevo18 дней назадTitle should have been "The vast use of mathematics"

Gary Rose19 дней назадone plus one equals three

guangxiao sheng19 дней назадShe knows nothing and talks nothing

Ben Hutcherson24 дня назадI'm sorry girl, but the skewed numbers aren't because men stretch the truth about the number of partners they've had out of pride. It's because women outright lie about the true number of penises that they have allowed inside them out of shame.

And that's a damned shame.

Melissa Loos24 дня назадAfter listening to this talk I actually do feel motivated enough to face another try in Analysis ;D

mturynP24 дня назадMathematics aren't basically pattern-recognition; applied maths are largely so.

Mathematics, as she almost said later, are about the precise definitions of entities and the relations between them (like syntax), e.g. 'These are integers, this is addition defined for integers, this is how it's related to multiplication defined for integers, what is a "prime number"; what other statements can we deduce about prime numbers based on these?'.

She's talking more about mathematical modelling---but you can create a mathematical model which is a perfectly valid bit of mathematics but whose relationship to what's being modelled might as well be 'Colourless, green, ideas sleep furiously.'.

Vadi VehlanМесяц назадShe is mathemacian or body builder. Ha ha ha.

Morty Mc FlyМесяц назадVybz kartel do di maths

paul omondiМесяц назадI only I had a hot maths teacher,...

Romain PennacchioМесяц назадAwesome talk! Thanks Dr. Cresswell!

Dean ChampionМесяц назадDoes she ever start taking her clothing off? And if not, why are we watching this? Because it isn't for her brilliance....

Alexander the GreatМесяц назадVery boring

RubenМесяц назад^{+1}4:26 Women only counts those men they're proud to have slept with, while men even count those women they only wished have slept with.

Greg DamarioМесяц назадIt is entirely appropriate that she is wearing those shoes while lecturing on this subject. And no left hand ring. I'm sold. What's her address?

Chuck Higgins2 месяца назадTake your pants off!

Arek Krolak2 месяца назадMathematics is not the study of patterns, maybe econometrics is :)

Hildebeast Clinton2 месяца назад^{+1}Nothing original. Moving on

Rohit Goswami2 месяца назадWelcome dear

Patrick Butler3 месяца назад^{+1}Top girl. Brains and beauty.

13.8 billion years3 месяца назадThese people are destroying the beauty of mathematics

Sciencz3 месяца назад^{+1}asstralia

J SD3 месяца назадRemember when TED Talks were unattractive men saying smart things?

winner yeahmateМесяц назадNope

Cubefarmer Hkc4 месяца назадThose arms!!!!!! I’m jealous

Lisa Witherby4 месяца назадDid she just call Biology a soft science? Pfft, we biologists are hardcore 😎

Étale ZT2 месяца назадI think she meant the "Mental aspect" of science because it's a common consensus that Math and Physics are relatively more mentally challenging than Biology. Although no disrespect to biologists. You guys are more important than Mathematicians in this world.

Joshua Swifte4 месяца назадa+b is not syntactically equivalent to b+a same result but the process is not the same ;)

Justin Tautou4 месяца назад^{+1}sry but that title is misleading

Ran Bahadur Gurung4 месяца назадXxx vide0sh

santhosh kumar.p4 месяца назад^{+2}Now, I get some interest in Mathematics.

james fox4 месяца назад^{+1}Not a single equation was performed that day

k k5 месяцев назадTerrible talk

Nick Librizzi5 месяцев назадI like how we can make up math problems to solve non math problems just like we use words and pronounce them differently. I'm not talking about potatoe or potatoe. Get it????

Greatest Ever5 месяцев назадoowwwww... those ODEs/PDEs! i feel like I'm in my calc class.

Zaya Ts5 месяцев назад^{+1}It's a common sense that numbers talk. I didn't get what she was intended to prove. One could do worse in math and still reach something higher and better in life? I think we've seen that in many walks of life. She is in perfect shape though.

JR5 месяцев назадLongitudinal awareness and downnn brownie lol

Titouan Moulin6 месяцев назад^{+3}Am I the only one who notice the xxxx at the end ?

Tim Barber6 месяцев назад^{+1}OMG! I just LOVE the LONG BLONDE HAIR and Austrailian accent! Mathematically speaking, this woman is a 963 on a scale of 1 to 10! :-)

coewhat6 месяцев назадSo, lasting relationship advice from an unmarried 45 yr old?? Huh??

RAJENDRA KHOSE6 месяцев назадI am from India mam. You gave good speech on this subject.

1MrCrispyduck6 месяцев назад^{+1}Thank you Clio, funny and an interesting introduction to multiple use of mathematics

chicho baltazar6 месяцев назадI call BS

sofortwo6 месяцев назад???

Mister Mister6 месяцев назад^{+1}Wow, She’s great! I’m a fan of math all of a sudden!!

ssssaintmarcus6 месяцев назад^{+1}I would lay her. Hot damn

Rohit Goswami6 месяцев назадGorgeous mathematical🐈 eeeee

Hanzo is moist6 месяцев назадLl lol lmlmlml ml ml w.

G S7 месяцев назадIn experimental psychology experiments, statistics is a more powerful tool than pure mathematical equations. Explaining 20% of variance in human behavior is an achievement in an experiment, let alone explaining it with 100% certainty.

Mitsuo7 месяцев назадThis was such a great video but damn.... she is so beautiful. I could not stop smiling and dreaming of loving her lol

Eddison Lewis7 месяцев назадAwesome lecture

Hugh Lennon7 месяцев назадShe has completely lowered the tone of Ted talks. And, what ridiculous looking trousers!

Dalton Sankey7 месяцев назадWhat did I learn again?

Dalton Sankey7 месяцев назадWell... I clicked this video cause I'm a simple man, Beautiful Lady+Sex.

Valkyrie7 месяцев назадSuccessful women look good. she proves this

nicholas Jaramillo7 месяцев назадDon't really like this

Max Pucher8 месяцев назадVery good talk but I want to add a word of caution. If mathematics is so pure and unambiguous, why is it being used to create the lie of climate change? In fact, like Cresswell says, it is a form of language that in essence is exact in outcome of yes or no or zero or one but that has nothing to do with what it tries to describe. Each formula that tries to model a natural phenomenon is at best probably approximately correct. Some formulae can in the very small i.e. quantum physics predict results with surprising accuracy, but no one will be able to model a chaotic complex adaptive system absolutely accurately especially over longer periods of time. Just like with a two arm pendulum the movements and progression are completely unpredictable. Therefore it is utterly wrong to say that mathematics provide unifying and unambiguous proof. Testing the mathematical predictions against reality is proof and even that is not achievable with complex natural and biological systems.

357Amun8 месяцев назадHigher math is more than 2000 years old. The Ishango bone goes back 27,000 years, according to some estimates, the Rhind papyrus 3,500 years... The Greeks and the Romans were the students, NOT the teachers.

Philip Hadad8 месяцев назадi have learned nothing from this ted talk but thoroughly enjoyed watching it.

indian strongman8 месяцев назадShe got muscles bro

Ricardo Palacios8 месяцев назадFit.

Aamir Tanoli8 месяцев назадWho else wouldn't arm wrestle her?

Rick Cannan8 месяцев назадMaths and the City.

Thanks Clio for your Allan Pease inspired 1970's talk that no man could have gotten away with. Many (mainly women) would have claimed men simply were not capable of doing the maths while their mind was so thoroughly engaged in other pursuits. The only possible exception is Emeritus Professor Hanna von Neumann, ANU. :)

Richard Garza8 месяцев назадMathematics and genocide?

Johnny Depth8 месяцев назадWay too muscular. Too masculine. Not feminine enough. She's built like a strong safety.

uruiamnot8 месяцев назадMy slide rule just spewed.

Elliot McMillan8 месяцев назадThis talk should have just said, "Hi, I like Math."

Planet Awesome8 месяцев назадwell some one here from Atlanta gym ..

M 18 месяцев назадswole is the goal, size is the price

R R8 месяцев назадHow is this useful ...😂😂😂 I'd smashed omg 😍😍😍

Shazee Nora8 месяцев назадhmm how much force i need from me to you? You hot blue eye

Sam Smullen8 месяцев назадThis is something that I can understand completely when relationship is put into mathematical formula. If I saw the equations (derivative and integration) before I met my second ex-wife, I wouldn't have married her!

Jon W8 месяцев назадJust understand men- there are true men, your choice and responsibility too choose. And, there's phoneys-YOUR CHOICE!!!!!! Then, and only then, can we, male and female be at peace. Remember Lady's, we pursue, you CHOOSE- BE ACCOUNTABLE!!! WERE OUT THERE< YOU JUST CHOOSE WRONG!!! TAKE ACCOUNTABILITY!!!

Jon W8 месяцев назадAND, why so HI HEELS?? Get the narrative? :(

Lorenzo Cosentino8 месяцев назадThe best

HootanHM8 месяцев назадThe title was deceptive !

is there anyone out there, that turns-on by studying mathematics?

I always wonder if I'm the only one!!! (and I should visit a doctor)

Al Schwartz8 месяцев назадif Husbands income > Wife's spending, husband gets to keep some of some of his earnings

Ray hammer8 месяцев назадidiots make complicated the simple things to make sure the cleavers have enough time to play with it...lol

Torok Akos9 месяцев назадYes yes, but dont use steroids please. thanks

a647509 месяцев назадat rare times HD video's too much detail

JD Anderson9 месяцев назадOkay I guess a lady bodybuilder can talk about math. I like that equation.

Phoebe Baker9 месяцев назадSome intriguing elements in this talk. I got a connection between language and math that I hadn’t thought of before. It reminded me of Isaac Asimov’s Foundation series.
