Maths is everywhere. Computers, communications and the internet work on mathematical principles. The Facebook network is a huge graph and maths can help us to understand it. Smart phones, iPods and SatNavs depend on the application of maths. The pharmaceuticals that cure us and control disease are made possible through mathematics. Weather  forecasts are made by mathematical models. Agricultural production is made more efficient, and forensic medicine and crime detection depend on maths. Maths now reaches into every corner of our lives.

There is no doubt that maths is enormously useful. In this talk I hope to show that it is also beautiful, and can be great fun.

The venue has capacity for 250 people and booking is done on a first come first served basis.
