Cultural challenges facing the Mathematical Sciences, The IMA Presidential Address by Professor Chris Linton

Abstract

The mathematical sciences ecosystem is a land full of excitement and opportunity.  But there is a danger that much of this will be missed if we cling to 20th century priorities and value judgements.  As the environment around us evolves, so must we.  In this talk I will describe some of those areas where I believe change is most needed and what the consequent benefits might be.

No charge is made to attend meetings; non-IMA members are welcome.

Attendees are asked to register for this event, please book your space.
