The first part of this lecture series is meant to illustrate the dictum that all suÿciently beautiful mathematical objects are connected. The two objects we choose to illustrate this are the icosahedron, the most subtle of the Platonic solids, and the Rogers-Ramanujan identities, often considered the most beautiful formulas in all of mathematics.
