Ian Stewart coming to Greenwich!
I'm thrilled to hear that Ian Stewart has accepted an invitation to give the keynote speech at the Undergraduate Mathematics Conference which the maths department at Greenwich is organising, with support from the IMA, next February. (For more details of the conference contact the organiser Noel-Ann Bradshaw.)
Ian Stewart is the author of many wonderful books including Why beauty is truth: a history of symmetry, Letters to a young mathematician, Professor Stewart's Cabinet of Mathematical Curiosities and Taming the Infinite: The Story of Mathematics. This summer he was awarded the Christopher Zeeman Medal, awarded jointly by the LMS and the IMA for his work on promoting mathematics. He is a brilliant speaker, and it will be wonderful to hear him at Greenwich again.
