The Unreasonable Effectiveness of Mathematics Other events...
An IAS public lecture by Winthrop Professor Cheryl Praeger AM FAA, Director of the Centre for Mathematics of Symmetry and Computation at UWA and 2009 WA Scientist of the Year.

As the vital role of technology in modern society increases, the mathematical sciences are becoming indispensable.

The title, borrowed from Eugene Wigner, is re-proved daily as mathematicians find that the same fundamentals of mathematics can apply to vastly different problems, giving applications from physics to finance, to fast secure communication.

The supply of mathematics graduates and mathematics teachers in Australia is unable to meet education and employer demand.

What must Australia do to properly equip itself for the future?
