Georg Friedrich Bernhard Riemann ushered in a new era of geometry on June 10, 1854, when he delivered his classic lecture “On the Hypotheses Which Lie at the Foundations of Geometry”. Join A.S.Ganesh as he unravels the tale of how a shy and timid person with fantastic mathematical ability laid the groundwork for curved surfaces and higher dimensions...

His description of gravity introduced the notion that a four-dimensional space-time warps and curves in response to mass or energy, changing centuries-old wisdom forever.
