Mathematics in Times of Crisis - Online Conference

Mathematics in Times of Crisis - Online Conference

Monday 6 July 2020 (All day)
Online, in BSHM website and Zoom

We will be holding an online conference on 6th July 2020, using a mix of specially recorded presentations and live discussion sessions using Zoom. Registration details to follow.

If you would like to give a presentation, please email Isobel Falconer (ijf3@st-andrews.ac.uk). Presentations may be of any length between 10 min and 40 min. Guidance on how to record your presentation will be provided. The "Crisis" might be mathematical (e.g. Cantor's realisation that there were different types of infinity), economic (e.g. a financial crash), health (e.g. Newton self-isolating in an orchard), political (e.g. transition between Chinese dynasties), warfare, or any other type that occurs to you. The interesting thing is how mathematics or mathematicians caused, responded to or developed during the crisis.
