Simon Smith gave the Pure Mathematics Colloquium at the University of St Andrews

Lincoln has one of the newest mathematics programmes in the country, and St Andrews has one of the oldest. On 14th March, Simon travelled from Lincoln to St Andrews to give the Pure Mathematics Colloquium at the University of St Andrews. His talk was on the interplay between permutation groups and locally compact groups.

Since the colloquium talk was given on Pi Day (3.14), instead of a colloquium dinner Simon, Peter Cameron and Rosemary Bailey went to a wonderful Pi Day ball, organised by the mathematics undergraduates at St Andrews. The dress code was “Black Tie or Pi Tie”. The venue was beautiful, the food was delicious (pie for main and pie for pudding) and the dancing at the after dinner ceilidh was intimidatingly good.
