Organised in collaboration with the School of Mathematics, University of Bristol, UK

Pursuit and Evasion

Imre Leader, Professor of Pure Mathematics, University of Cambridge, UK

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 start with some background on this kind of ‘continuous pursuit’ problem, and then move on to some more recent developments.
