Description

A series of public lectures showing how relevant mathematics is to all of our lives, and the process by which mathematical ideas move from the abstract to the practical, and also transfer technology between very different disciplines.

Whilst introducing you to some advanced modern mathematical ideas, these lectures will start from an elementary level, accessible to all, and will be packed with examples, many of which will be drawn from my own direct experience.

Gresham Professor of Geometry, Chris Budd OBE, is based at the University of Bath, where he is Professor of Applied Mathematics and Director of the Centre of Nonlinear Mechanics. He has a long history of engagement in the public understanding of science and mathematics through institutions such as the Royal Institution and the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications.
