On behalf of the Edinburgh Mathematical Society, the School of Mathematics and Statistics would like to invite you to a public lecture held on Friday 4th October 2019 at 5:15pm in the Physics Lecture Theatre A, North Haugh.
The speaker is Dr. David Acheson (Oxford). In his talk “Mathematics, Magic and Playing the Guitar” he will address the following questions:
“Why is infinity so dangerous? How can chocolate and pizza help to prove theorems? And what has all this got to do with playing the guitar? Join David for an off-beat look at mathematics at its best, with live demonstrations.”
