The talks are provided by The Archimedeans (CU Mathematical Society). We arrange 6/7 Speaker Meetings per term, where distinguished academics from around the UK, and occasionally abroad, come to talk to us. All our talks are suitable for for first year undergraduates, so will be accessible to anybody with an interest in Mathematics.

Speaker Meetings usually occur on Friday evenings. There is a small charge to non-members. For more details see our website www.archim.org.uk .
