Large numbers and where to find them
Sat 22 October 2016, 14:00 – 15:00 IST
Just how big is the sun? And how far is a light year? How long would it take to count to a googol? In this talk, we will explore the forest of large numbers and learn how to tame some of its wilder specimens!
Dr. David Conlon joins us for a second year to help us celebrate Maths Week and the wonder of numbers!
David is a lecturer at the University of Oxford and a fellow of Wadham College, Oxford, working in the field of combinatorics.
