January 2018 Workshop

When: Wednesday 24 January, 2018.
Where: Department of Mathematics, Fraser Noble Building FN156.
Time: 13:30 – 17:15.

Organisers: Jim Howie (Heriot-Watt), Ben Martin (Aberdeen), Colva Roney-Dougal (St Andrews).

Supported by the Glasgow Mathematical Journal Trust.

The Department of Mathematics is at the Old Aberdeen campus. For travel information, see here and for a campus map, see here.

There are no formal lunch arrangements, but a group of us will probably go to the main university cafeteria at around noon.

 Time Speaker Title
 13:30-14:30  Valentina Grazian (Aberdeen)  Fusion and pearls: what is known.
 14:45-15:45  Rosemary Bailey (St Andrews)  Some applications of finite group theory in the design of experiments.
 15:45-16:15  Tea/coffee
 16:15-17:15  JB Gramain (Aberdeen)  Basic sets and perfect isometries.

There will be a dinner at 18:15 at a restaurant near the train station.

Funding: We expect to be able to pay reasonable travel costs for all participants (depending on numbers).  If more people come than expected, priority will be given to postgraduate students and those without other sources of funding.

Registration: There is no formal registration.  If you plan to attend, we’d be grateful if you would email Ben Martin B.Martin@abdn.ac.uk by the end of Monday 22 January, to give us an idea of numbers.  Please give a rough estimate of your travel costs if you would like to be reimbursed, and let us know whether you want to go to the dinner (and what your dietary restrictions are, if any).

This is the fourth in a series of workshops: for the first, click here, for the second, click here and for the third, click here.  The fifth will take place on Thursday 10 May 2018* at St Andrews.

Originally scheduled for 26 April, but moved to avoid a clash with the Scottish Combinatorics Meeting .
