A Brief History of Classification

David Pitts,
Sorting objects comes naturally to humans from books in the library,
to elements in the periodic table. But how do mathematicians decide
whether things are the same? In this talk I’ll illustrate examples of
classifications’ from different areas of mathematics: what are we
looking for in a satisfactory classification?
