Maths week in Ireland

The 4th annual Maths Week Ireland takes place this week, and it is presented as an “all island celebration of mathematics” at the official website. The Irish Times published an interesting article about this yesterday. There are several activities going on during the week, and it is all “timed to coincide with the annual Hamilton Day” on October 16th. William Rowan Hamilton (1805-1865) was one of Ireland’s most famous mathematicians, and he was also a physicist and astronomer.

Make sure to check out the official website for a list of events!
