Lecture Series

The Society funds two Lectureship schemes:

1. The Hardy Lectureship

The Hardy Lectureship is named after G.H. Hardy, former President of the Society and De Morgan Medallist. It is normally awarded in odd-numbered years, to a distinguished overseas mathematician. 听The Hardy Lecturer visits the UK for a period of about 2-3 weeks, and gives the Hardy Lecture at a Society meeting, normally held in London in June/July. The Hardy Lecturer also gives at least six other lectures, on different topics, at other venues in the UK.

2. The Invited Lecture Series

The biennial Invited Lecturers scheme aims to bring a distinguished overseas mathematician to the United Kingdom to present a small course of about ten lectures spread over a week. Each course of Invited Lectures is on a major field of current mathematical research, and is instructional in nature, being directed both at graduate students beginning research and at established mathematicians who wish to learn about a field outside their own research specialism.
