SciBar 14th February – Mathematics, Love and Romantic Guitar

They say you never forget your first love. David Acheson believes you never forget your first moment of real excitement in mathematics,
either. So why not join him for an informal and off-beat look at mathematics at its very best, with a bit of romantic guitar playing thrown in for good measure.

David Acheson is an Emeritus Fellow of Jesus College, Oxford, and author of the best-selling popular maths book ‘1089 and All That’, which has now been translated into 11 languages. His new book The Calculus Story was one of New Scientist’s ‘picks for Christmas’.
