DESCRIPTION:There has been much recent interest in the mathematical activi
ties of C. L. Dodgson (Lewis Carroll)\, especially with the publication of
Dodgson’s diaries and my popular paperback\, ‘Lewis Carroll in Number
land’ which described his mathematical ‘day job’ in the context of V
ictorian Oxford and his role as Mathematical Lecturer at Christ Church. Bu
t for some time there’s been a need for a more serious single-volume boo
k that covers all aspects of his mathematical activities\, written by expe
rts from around the world\, and this was achieved in February with the pub
lication of this book by Oxford University Press edited by Robin Wilson an
d Amirouche Moktefi.\n\nThis talk will outline his mathematical career and
specifically his work in geometry\, algebra\, logic\, voting theory and r
ecreational mathematics\, and will be followed by an opportunity to acquir
e the book at a reduced cost.\nSpeakers:\nRobin Wilson (The Open Universit
y)
