Invited Lectures

The annual Invited Lecturers Series aim to bring a distinguished overseas mathematician to the United Kingdom to present a small course of about ten lectures spread over a week. Each course of Invited Lectures is on a major field of current mathematical research, and is instructional in nature, being directed both at graduate students beginning research and at established mathematicians who wish to learn about a field outside their own research specialism.

Invited Lecturer 2012; Alexei Borodkin

Invited Lecture Series 2017

Professor Jim Agler (UC San Diego) visited Newcastle from 18-22 April 2017 to give a series of lectures on Function Theory by Hilbert Space Methods.

The topic was a powerful machinery that has been developed in the last 60 years both to discover and to prove theorems about analytic functions in one and several complex variables through the construction of operators on Hilbert space. 

There were supplementary lectures by:

  • Professor John McCarthy (Washington University in St. Louis, USA). 
  • Associate Professor Greg Knese (Washington University in St. Louis, USA). 
  • Assistant Professor Kelly Bickel (Bucknell University, Lewisburg, PA, USA).
