Zoom, hosted by the LMS
Start date
Meeting Date
Nina Snaith (Bristol)


This meeting was intended as an introduction to the Annual General Meeting on 12 November 2021 at which Professor Jon Keating FRS (Oxford), will give the Presidential Address on Random Matrices and the Riemann Zeta-Function, with an accompanying talk by Professor Jens Marklof (Bristol) on Random Lattices.  All graduate students (and indeed any other mathematicians) welcome.

The event included a talk by Nina Snaith (Bristol) and opportunities for Graduate Students to give 15 minute talks on their research to a general mathematical audience.

(All timings are in GMT)

1.00pm Opening of Meeting and Welcome

Nina Snaith (Bristol)

Title: Hollywood's hippest mathematics: random matrices and Riemann zeros

Abstract: This is the story of how physicists helped answer a hundred-year-old question about the Riemann zeta function and how this features in a major Hollywood movie.
