In this beautiful video, “Nature by Numbers,” film maker Cristobal Vila presents a series of animations illustrating various mathematics principles, beginning with a breathtaking animation of the Fibonacci Sequence before moving on to the Golden Ratio, the Angle Ratio, the Delaunay Triangulation and Voronoi Tessellations. The words are scary-sounding, but the math is beautiful and the film serves to remind us of the intimate relationship between nature and math.
