A method for turning a sphere inside out by means of smooth but special corrugations that avoid ripping or tearing and have recently found surprising and unexpected applications in the exploration of intricate solutions to differential equations. The Public Lecture will employ computer generated visualisations to help explain these and related developments, and to convey the excitement they have caused. The aim also is to confirm the perceptive remark by geometer and topologist, William Thurston who said:

"The real satisfaction from mathematics is in learning from others and sharing with others"
