Mathematics is believed to be a language of symbols with metamathematical meaning attached to them, for example:
Can be translated in English as:
For every positive real number, , there exists a natural number, , such that, if the natural numbers and are greater than or equal to then absolute value of the difference between and is less than
Many contemporary mathematicians (big-shots) like Jean-Pierre Serre , believe that instead of logographic language (symbols represent the words themselves), we should use alphabetic language (words are made up of various letters) . This also makes sense to me, because as seen in above example, symbols seem to hide beautiful simplicity of a mathematical statement. But, on the other hand, alphabetic language is too lengthy to write.
But, there are some sub-domains in mathematics which doesn’t depend on language, for example Geometry. Let me illustrate this point with following Spanish video created by Cristóbal Vila (Instituto Universitario de Matemáticas y Aplicaciones of the Universidad de Zaragoza):
Irrespective of the language you speak, you can appreciate the relationship between different artistic works and mathematics (mainly, Geometry)
