Happy Birthday LMS

11 September 2015

The department held an event on 3rd September to celebrate the founding of the London Mathematical Society 150 years ago. Following an invited lecture by Massimiliano Gei (Cardiff) on the Mechanics of Pre-stressed thin films, which formed part of the CERMAT summer school, Alun Morris, former Treasurer of the Society, gave a short address about Aberystwyth's links with the LMS, which extend right back to its foundation, and we toasted the health of mathematics and the LMS.
