2nd Annual Boole Lecture in Mathematics

Maths & Physics News

On 7th of November 2016 Dr Peter M. Neumann, OBE, from Oxford delivered our Second Annual Boole Lecture in Mathematics. A fascinating talk about a revolutionary mathematician Évariste Galois which enlightened the public about his dramatically short but extraordinary fruitful life. In the span of just a few years Galois opened up a whole new direction for mathematics, which is now taught to all pure mathematics undergraduates. The lecture was well attended by staff, students and members of the public, some of whom travelled from Nottingham and York to listen to Peter’s talk.
