5 Minutes with Hal Kierstead

Hal Kierstead is a Professor at the School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences in Arizona State University.  He visited our Department in September to work with Jan van den Heuvel and Daniel Quiroz.  He also spoke at our Seminar on Combinatorics, Games and Optimisation about the history and applications of generalised colouring numbers, a notion which arose from an […]

5 Minutes with Maura Paterson

Maura Paterson (Birkbeck, University of London) visited our Department to present her seminar on “Applications of Disjoint Difference Families”.  She also kindly took time out with Julia Böttcher (LSE) to answer a few questions on her research interests and how she takes a break from mathematics.

 

Late last year, you gave a talk in our Seminar on Discrete Mathematics and […]
