The London Mathematical Society and the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Glasgow invites you to:
The Hardy Lecture 2023 in Glasgow
Title: Quantizing via Polytope counting: Old and new
Speaker: Professor Eva Miranda, Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Barcelona
Time: Thursday, 21 September 3-4pm with a wine reception to follow at 4pm in the Level-3 common room
Location: Lecture Room 116 of the Mathematics and Statistics Building, University of Glasgow
“The mathematician’s patterns, like the painter’s or the poet’s must be beautiful; the ideas like the colours or the words, must fit together in a harmonious way..”
― G.H. Hardy, A Mathematician's Apology
We will present a simple quantization method for toric manifolds. Our approach connects Bohr-Sommerfeld leaves to integer points located in the image of the moment map. This method is suitable for symplectic manifolds and specific classes of Poisson manifolds.
About the speaker: 
The 2023 LMS Hardy Lecturer is Professor Eva Miranda (UPC Barcelona), a Full Professor at Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, specializing in Differential Geometry, Mathematical Physics, and Dynamical Systems. She has been honored with several prestigious awards, including two ICREA Academia Prizes in 2016 and 2021, a 2017 Chaire d'Excellence of the FSMP in Paris, a Bessel Prize in 2022, and the François Deruyts Prize in 2022.
About the lecture series: 
The Hardy Lectureship was founded in 1967 in memory of G.H. Hardy in recognition of outstanding contribution to both mathematics and to the Society. The Hardy Lectureship is a lecture tour of the UK by a mathematician with a high reputation in research.
