LMS: Inaugural Hirst Lecture & Society Meeting
The Inaugural Hirst Lecture & Society Meeting celebrates the joint award of the Hirst Prize & Lectureship, in the 150th Anniversary year of the London Mathematical Society, to Professor Edmund Robertson (St. Andrews) and the Dr John O’Connor (St. Andrews) for their creation, development and maintenance of the MacTutor History of Mathematics web site.
The prize and lectureship are named after Thomas A. Hirst, 5th President of the London Mathematical Society from 1872-1874. The prize is awarded in recognition of original and innovative work in the history of mathematics, which may be in any medium.
These lectures are aimed at a general audience. All interested, whether LMS members or not, are most welcome to attend this event. For further details and to register please email email@example.com
