The Liverpool Branch of the MA

The Liverpool Mathematical Society was founded in 1899 and has been affiliated to the Mathematical Association since 1929.

We run a number of events, ranging from professional development activities for teachers in both the Primary and Secondary school sector, through to student competitions involving a Sixth-form Quiz and mathematical Challenges. We also organise a series of (free) popular mathematics lectures aimed at both teachers and students alike. Some events involve a small fee.

Programme

Events are listed below but the branch website www.maths.liv.ac.uk/lms.html will have comprehensive details of the current programme.

The venues for these meetings are usually split between the University of Liverpool; Liverpool John Moores University, and Liverpool Hope University College.

Presenter: Dr Emily Howard

Title: Orbits: Mathematics Meets Music

Audience: Year 11 up

Venue: Redmonds Building, Liverpool John Moores University, Brownlow Hill L3 5UG

Emily says: I’m a composer. I write music and I like to take inspiration for my music from mathematics. Recently I have been collaborating with mathematician Lasse Rempe-Gillen at the University of Liverpool and I will talk about how I created musical works ‘Leviathan’ and ‘Orbits’ in response to Lasse’s own current research in dynamical systems. The talk will feature video footage of musical performances by virtuoso Paris-based duo scapegoat and conversations with Lasse about the mathematics behind the music.

NO TICKETS FOR THIS LECTURE. ALL ARE WELCOME. STUDENTS OF ALL AGES ARE FREE, ALSO MEMBERS OF LivMS ARE FREE. OTHERS £3 AT THE DOOR.
