Speakers: Dr Allan McRobie, Cambridge University Engineering Department

A gentle look at how the mathematics that is used to study the stability of ships, oil rigs and building columns can not only be used to weigh distant galaxies but, rather unexpectedly, can also give new insights into art, and particularly the portrayal of the nude.

Warning: this talk contains mathematics and nudity!

Light refreshments served before the talk.
