4th Mar 201320:30Guest SpeakerMATHS SOCIETY: Combinatorics and Cancer - Prof. Simon Tavaré (DAMTP)Speaker: Prof. Simon Tavaré (DAMTP)

It is difficult to follow the evolution of a cancer over large numbers of
cell divisions. Instead of using direct measurements. However, it is
possible to infer features of this evolution from indirect measurements
such as patterns of mutations in the tumour. I will give an overview of two
stochastic processes that arise in understanding tumour heterogeneity, the
spatial structure of mutations in tumour cells. Time allowing, I will
describe how Approximate Bayesian Computation can be used for inference in
this setting. Biological context will be provided! (Winstanley Lecture Theatre).

18th Feb 201320:30AcademicAbstraction in Mathematics - Dr. Julia Goedecke (DPMMS)From 20:30-21:30
The word abstraction often sounds daunting to many non-mathematicians, and probably also to some mathematicians. However, abstraction is all around us: not only in mathematics, but also in the way we form terms and concepts in our language. For example we all group together houses, schools, college chapels and skyscrapers under the word "building". So if we know something that is common to all buildings (for example that they have to be maintained), then we know this for every building we meet without having to work it out anew in each case.

Mathematics builds heavily on abstraction. Some even say that abstraction is the main ingredient in mathematics. I will present some examples of mathematical concepts that arise as abstractions of well-known situations which every undergraduate has met. My research area - category theory - can be called the most abstract area of mathematics. We will try to explore the point of view and underlying principles that drive category theorists to their very abstract way of thinking.

time for dinner.

Our speakers this year have already taken us from Antibodies to Atoms
and from Christianity to Causality and the upcoming set of speakers
promises to be just as exciting. They are:

*Dr **Glen Rangwala* (Social and Political Sciences), who has decided to
take this as the stage of a major confession as he tells us about
"*Predicting the Middle East, or Hosni Mubarak: My Part in His
Downfall"*. (Expect the Egyptian tabloid to be present)


*Dr Malte Groshe* (Physics), who will report from the frontier of
boundless materials in condensed matter research (Title TBC).

Please RSVP by e-mailing to ( ) if you are
planning to come, or if you have any queries, and those fellows wishing
to dine after the talks are kindly requested to sign in by Tuesday
February 5.
