Every year the Royal Irish Academy and the Maths community around Ireland celebrates Hamilton Day

Hamilton Day commemorates a ground-breaking discovery by one of Ireland’s most famous scientists. On 16 October 1843, William Rowan Hamilton discovered quaternion algebra while walking along the Royal Canal from Dunsink Observatory to the Royal Irish Academy. This was one of those very rare Eureka moments in the history of science. So excited was he by his discovery that he scratched his equation on the wall of Broome Bridge, Cabra.

This year we are delighted to have famous mathematician Professor Caroline Series FRS, University of Warwick,  giving a free online lecture on ‘Glimpses into Hyperbolic Geometry’. The lecture will be accessible to all and viewers will have a chance to submit a question to the chair.

Details of the lecture and a link to register to view the lecture are included below. We would be most grateful if you could circulate to your members or share via social media.

Professor Series will deliver this online lecture live from Trinity College Dublin. Professor Martin Mathieu, MRIA, Queen’s University Belfast will chair the lecture and Q&A session.

Glimpses into Hyperbolic Geometry.
It is some two hundred years since the discovery of non-Euclidean or hyperbolic geometry; geometry in which the angles in a triangle sum to less than two right angles. Hyperbolic geometry has seen great flowering in the last forty years, bringing it right into the mainstream of mathematics. We offer some glimpses into these developments, in particular some astonishingly beautiful computer graphics.

Organised by the Physical, Chemical and Mathematical Sciences Committee.
