Creativity in mathematics may look paradoxical. Mathematics is a precise
science with precise rules to follow. Where is the place for creativity in
this castle of precision and rigor? What meaningful (philosophical)
questions can we pose about mathematical creativity today? The workshop
aims to bring together mathematicians, philosophers, IT and mathematical
education specialists to get an insight into the non-exhaustive list of
topics:
What is special about mathematical creativity?
Creativity in the invention and deployment of mathematical rules
Creativity in pure and applied mathematics
Creativity and mathematical purity
Creativity in the invention of notational systems
Creativity in using media and artifacts
Creativity in definitions and concept formation
Creativity in proofs
Creativity and aesthetics
Creativity in metaphorical and analogical thinking
How far are we in grasping mathematical creativity by computational means?
