7.00PM - 8.00PM
Speaker: Donald Smith

Venue: Lecture Theatre B4, Cottrell Building, University of Stirling

A second chance, for those who missed it, to hear a lecture first given in 2012. We all have some feeling for what 'infinity' means and it is a word that is used in everyday language, but can it be defined? Does it behave like a number? Can you get more than infinity? In this talk we shall explore some of the strange things that can happen with infinity and try to pin it down so that we can talk about it more precisely.

This lecture is part of the A Random Walk through Mathematics and Computing Science series of public lectures organised by Computing Science and Mathematics, University of Stirling.
