Happy Christmas from MathSoc!

We started off this new academic year with our Freshers' Social, which involved a scavenger hunt around Durham as well as lots of hanging out in the college bars, and a fantastic talk by Rob Eastaway on 'Ten ways to win a maths bet in the pub' straight from the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Still coming up this term we have a Hill Bar Crawl planned for Monday 28th November, followed by the annual Xmas meal at the Slug and Lettuce on Tuesday 6th December. Both of these events will hopefully prove to be fun and include some drinking and general festivities to get us into the xmas spirit!

As well as all these events the undergraduate colloquia are on-going. Our first talk by Dr Mukund Rangamani on 'Black Holes as Holograms' was a success and a second talk quickly followed from three 4th year students - Matthew Palmer, Katie Gittins and Antony Lawson - detailing their summer projects in the department.

Our next colloquium is scheduled for 7th December. It will be given by Liz Hanbury and more details will follow soon.

For a recap of last year’s events, check out our latest edition
of Purple Maths, our newsletter.

We are a society that tries to provide another side to university life.

We don't sit around talking maths, but we provide a social setting
to meet fellow mathematicians or just maths-interested people,
to get talking away from lectures.
