Many of the world's top mathematicians have aired their ideas at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute in Berkeley, California. You can check out a selection of these talks at the institute's site, which offers more than 3000 hours of video lectures dating back to 1993. The topics span pure math and applications such as bioinformatics. You can watch topologist Joel Hass of the University of California, Davis, discuss minimal and normal surfaces or mathematician Ron Graham of UC San Diego discourse on Euclidean Ramsey theory. In one recent addition, Stanford cardiologist Thomas Quertermous explains the analysis of microarrays to identify genes that underlie heart disease. Many of the seminars also include lecture notes as PDF files.
