Answer:

A new theorem in maths was created and proved by writer Ken Keeler for the episode “The Prisoner of Benda” on the latest season of Futurama.

Futurama- New math Theorem created and proved by writer Ken Keeler for the episode “The Prisoner of Benda”.

A theorem in group theory specifically written and proved to explain a plot twist in the last Futurama episode.

Futurama and the proof of the body-switching theorem.

The proof appeared in the episode ‘Prisoner of Benda’

Futurama

Super question.

Futurama Theorem.

Copy paste from here.

http://www.geekosystem.com/fut.....da-theory/

Writer Ken Keeler (who also just happens to have a PhD in mathematics) ended up writing and proving an entirely new theorem.

In the episode “The Prisoner of Benda,” the Professor and Amy use a new invention to switch bodies. Unfortunately, they discover that the same two brains can’t switch twice and have to come up with some equation to prove that, with enough people switching, eventually everyone will end up in their rightful form.

ken keeler’s theorem from ‘the prisoner of benda’

A writer for Futurama, Ken Keeler, created a brand new math theorem based on group theory to explain a plot twist in the show,his theorem was used to explain a problem with an invention that let characters switch bodies. In the show, you can only switch bodies once with the same pair of people, so they needed an equation to prove that with enough switching bodies around, everyone will eventually end up as who they really are.

ken keeleer for Futurama created a brand new math theorem based on group theory to explain a plot twist in the show.

Those Futurama fellows. One writer has a PhD in mathematics, so he invented and proved a theorem just for the show.

Futurama episode, The Prisoner Of Benda. The Mind Switcher in it only works once with the same pair of people. So to prove that everyone involved can end up as themselves at the end, writer Ken Keeler invented a new math theorem using Group Theory and proved it too.

Phew!

A theorem and proof by one of the Futurama folks to go with their “Prisoner of Benda” mind-switching episode. Used to get everyone back into their correct bodies in the fewest possible switches. The trope is called the “Freaky Friday Flip” and Gilligan’s Island’s “The Friendly Physician” episode was likely the genesis for the Futurama episode.

This is a screen shot from ‘The Prisoner of Benda’ the 98th episode of Futurama. The theorem and its proof shown here are based on Group Theory.
