The History of Number Theory

The History of Number Theory

Saturday 21 May 2016 (All day)
Birkbeck College, London

This is the second of what we hope will be a regular annual Birkbeck conference organised by the British Society for the History of Mathematics (BSHM), and supported by the Department of Economics, Mathematics and Statistics at Birkbeck.

Last year's conference, Symmetry and Groups (May 2015) was very successful with nearly 70 people registered to attend. We hope the 2016 event will be similarly popular.

This year's event will trace the study of number theory from its ancient origins to the present day.

Registration will be £5 for students, £10 for BSHM members and Birkbeck staff, and £20 for non-members. This will include tea/coffee and biscuits at break times, but not lunch, as we wanted to keep the registration fee to a minimum. There are numerous places to eat within easy walking distance of Birkbeck, including a coffee shop that sells sandwiches and snacks within Birkbeck itself.
