Euler's science of combinatorics
- Robin Wilson (OU/Oxford/Gresham College)
- 1st November 2006
- 2:00 pm. MSS Building, Room C019
Next April marks the tercentenary of Euler's birth.
In this illustrated anniversary talk, aimed at a general
mathematical audience, I shall outline his life and works,
with particular reference to his various contributions to
combinatorial mathematics: partitions, the derangement
problem, magic and latin squares, the Königsberg bridges
problem and Euler's polyhedron formula.
Newton Institute presentation
The lecture will be followed by a presentation by
Sir David Wallace, the new director of the
Isaac Newton Institute, and that will be followed by
refreshments in MSS/N2 at 3.30.
