Inaugural Professorial Lecture by Evgeny Khukhro

On 17 January Prof. Evgeny Khukhro gave his inaugural professorial public lecture “Is algebra a spoilsport in mathematics?” in Isaac Newton Building of University of Lincoln. Beyond the provocative title, numerous examples were discussed where, on the one hand, lively mathematical problems seem to be  “dried up” by algebra, which in a sense takes fun out […]
