We are delighted to welcome Imre Leader, Professor of Pure Mathematics, University of Cambridge, to deliver a Heilbronn colloquium in person, at the University of Bristol.

Title: Pursuit and Evasion

Abstract: In Rado’s famous `lion and man’ problem, a man and a lion are in a circular arena. The lion wants to catch the man, and the man does not want to be caught by the lion. Each can run at the same speed. Who wins? We will start with some background on this kind of `continuous pursuit’ problem, and then move on to some more recent developments.

This colloquium will be an in person event held between 15.00 – 16.00 LT4 Chemistry Building. Followed by afternoon tea in the Fry Building Common Room.
Registration for this event is now open. Register Here by 16.00 on the 6th December
