French mathematician to deliver Hamilton lecture

Wendelin Werner will deliver the annual Hamilton Day lecture, an event staged to celebrate the work of Irish mathematician William Rowan Hamilton and his discovery of a novel form of maths called quaternion algebra.

Werner is a German-born French mathematician who received the Fields Medal in 2006 for his work in areas including field theory and Brownian motion. The medal is considered the world’s highest prize in maths given there is no Nobel award for mathematics. He is based at ETH Zurich.

Booking for the popular lecture, which is free to attend and will take place on 16 October at 7.30pm in the Edmund Burke theatre in Trinity College Dublin, opened on 2 August.
