Blaaaaaaargh. I’m not feeling particularly well today. Not sure why, but I’m working on the assumption that it’s an extremely temporary situation.
Nevertheless, I’m not in a ‘writing lots of information mood’, so just know this: The event this week will be awesome, it will be on tropical geometry, and (as always) there are more details below the fold. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got to drag my sorry ass to uni…
The spine of an amoeba and other tropical curiosities.
A new area of mathematics known as “Tropical Geometry” has arisen recently from a disparate collection of roots. Although the subject is new and enables some deep mathematics, it is easy to understand and to investigate. We will describe a few aspects of it.
Presenter: John Groves
When: Friday 17th of September, 1pm-2pm
Where: Hercus Theatre, Department of Physics
Free refreshments will be served after the seminar.
