The unexpected math behind Van Gogh's "Starry Night" 

Recognition of patterns: Solve turbulence theory with Van Gogh!

Interesting images of the pattern recognition theory were revealed in TED(Lesson by Natalya St. Clair). In short, the human brain has an amazing ability to recognize and describe patterns. However, the most difficult problem to solve is the turbulence concept in fluid dynamics(hydrokinetics). This concept, which we should look at in the physics concept, is a complex task that must be solved first by mathematical ways, but it is still difficult to understand.

But there is an interesting study that can be described as Art! Van Gogh 's circular brushstroke, which he showed in "The Starry Night," creates a whirlpool sky, which captures movement and expresses light, unlike the previous impressionism. In other words, the brushstroke to capture the movement of light can explain the turbulence that is difficult to solve mathematically. For more information, see the video!
