Spitalfields History of Mathematics Meeting & Hirst Lectures

新澳开奖Spitalfields History of Mathematics Meeting & Hirst Lecture

Owing to changes in the Society's programme of activities, from 2023-24 onwards, the Spitalfields History of Mathematics Meetings are now combined with the Hirst Lecture so that the biennial 新澳开奖Spitalfields History of Mathematics Meeting & Hirst Lecture is held in even-numbered years. The Hirst Lecture is given by the Hirst Prize-winner and the Hirst Prize is awarded in odd-numbered years with the Hirst Lecture given in the following even-numbered years.


Spitalfields History of Mathematics Meetings were one-day events of Survey Lectures for a general mathematical audience, which may be attached to either meetings or symposia on specialist topics.

The events were formerly named Spitalfields Days and these meetings are in honour of the Spitalfields Mathematical Society, a precursor of the London Mathematical Society, which flourished from 1717 to 1845.听

The Isaac Newton Institute in Cambridge, the Mathematics Research Centre in Warwick, the International Centre for Mathematical Sciences in Edinburgh, and, from time to time, other Mathematics Departments, hold meetings or symposia on specialist topics, which are attended by eminent mathematicians from overseas. The Society thought that it was important for recent developments in these specialist topics to be made known to the general mathematical community, and, in particular, to research students. It therefore provided funds to the organisers of these meetings so that they could provide a day of survey lectures, accessible to a general mathematical audience.
