SOMETHING NEW EVERY DAY
The Math & Magic of Ron Graham
A film by George Csicsery
This 21-minute film was prepared for Ron Graham's 80th birthday. It celebrates Graham's remarkable career as a mathematician and magician, as well as his important leadership roles in many of the institutions that support the pursuit of mathematics throughout the world. The film contains outtakes from the film N is a Number: A Portrait of Paul Erdős that were shot between 1988 and 1991, scenes from a day of filming at Graham's December 1999 retirement event at Bell Labs, and interviews filmed for Erdős 100, a 30-minute film that was screened at Paul Erdős's 100th birthday celebration in Budapest in 2013. In addition there are dozens of stills provided by Ron Graham, and by the filmmaker, George Csicsery.
The film premiered on June 15, 2015 at Connections in Discrete Mathematics: A Celebration of the Work of Ron Graham, held June 15-19, 2015 in Vancouver, Canada.
Something New Every Day: The Math & Magic of Ron Graham was made possible with generous support from the Elwyn & Jennifer Berlekamp Foundation.
Something New Every Day is available as part of the 10-video DVD Erdős 100 Plus published in regular and Blu-ray DVD versions in July 2018.
