The YouTube channel Closer to Truth publishes the second conversation with our cosmologist Licia Verde, this time about the essence of mathematics. From Galileo Galilei's description, "The great book of nature is written in mathematical language", the ICCUB researcher explains how mathematical language allows us to describe the physical Universe in a generally unambiguous way.

Licia Verde has been an ICREA professor since 2007, and belongs to the Cosmology and Large-scale Structure research group at the Institute of Cosmos Sciences, specifically doing Observational Cosmology. Cosmology is the field of physics that studies the origin, evolution and composition of the universe. Her group focuses on finding explanations for some of the still unanswered questions of cosmology, such as what dark energy is, or what originated the universe’s primordial perturbations.
