Professor Stewart's Cabinet of Mathematical Curiosities, a surprise Christmas bestseller, is now accompanied by his Hoard of Mathematical Treasures. Both books are mathematical miscellanies for the general public, ranging from one-liners to mini-essays on the great problems and applications of mathematics. The lecture will present a selection of their contents, in an accessible and highly illustrated way.

This lecture is free - no ticket or advanced booking required. Doors open at 5.45pm and seats will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.
