Cambridge Science Festival free public talk
One of the earliest applications of mathematics to medicine was Bernoulli’s study 250 years ago of the efficacy of vaccinating against smallpox, which in the 18th century killed hundreds of thousands of people a year. Join Professor Tom Körner as he explores Bernoulli’s work, and investigates how the arguments and ideas involved remain relevant and interesting today.
