Public lecture:  A Beautiful Question: finding nature's deep design - 8 July 2015 - 18.30 - Old Theatre, Old Building, LSE
World-class physicist and Nobel laureate Professor Frank Wilczek (MIT) will discuss his new book, "A Beautiful Question", which argues that beauty is at the heart of the logic of the universe, a principle that had guided his pioneering work in quantum physics. A Beautiful Question is the culmination of Wilczek's life work, a work that looks to combine the age-old quest for beauty with the age-old quest for truth.The press release can be read here.

This event will be chaired by Professor Bernhard von Stengel.  This event is free and open to all with no ticket or pre-registration required.  Entry is on a first come, first served basis.  More information is available here.

Recent major events:

Two One-Day Colloquia in Combinatorics - 13 & 14 May 2015

The 2015 Colloquia in Combinatorics took take place on 13-14 May, jointly hosted by the LSE Mathematics Department and Queen Mary, University of London. This event offered the opportunity to hear talks by both prominent and promising mathematicians from the UK and abroad, on a variety of topics within the broad field of combinatorics and related areas. Full details can be found here.

Organisers: Jozef Skokan (LSE), Robert Johnson (QMUL) and David Ellis (QMUL)
