A mathematician responds to questions from Twitter about various mathematical concepts. The questions range from why we solve problems in a particular order to who the greatest mathematician in history is. The mathematician provides explanations for each concept and encourages people to continue learning about mathematics.

**00:00:00**Mathematician Moon Duchen discusses the use of imaginary numbers and how they are essential for solving equations. He also mentions the collaborative nature of math research, which can be seen in the paper correspondence between mathematicians from a century ago.**00:05:00**The mathematician discusses some of the breakthroughs in mathematics from the 20th century, including the discovery of eight new three-dimensional geometries and the lack of a single three-dimensional geometry that encompasses all other geometries. He also discusses how blockchain could be seen as a plot by mathematicians to convince governments, investors, and billionaires to give money to low-level math research.**00:10:00**A mathematician responds to questions from Twitter, explaining the mathematics behind various concepts. One question asks why we solve problems in a particular order, and another asks who is the greatest mathematician in history. Although the mathematician doesn't provide a definitive answer, they say that it is up to the individual to decide who is the greatest mathematician.**00:15:00**Math Twitter is a great way to learn about interesting mathematicians and their work. Felix Halsdorf is a famous mathematician who developed fractals, and Emmy Noether is a mathematician who is known for her work on abstract algebra. Jhatch17 asks a question about why letters are used in equations, and Alejandra Turtle provides an explanation of calculus.
