Frank P. Ramsey, the Host with the Most
Friday 25th May, 2012 16:00-17:00 Mathematics Building, room 516
Frank P. Ramsey was a pretty clever guy, by the age of 25 he had made huge contributions in diverse areas of Mathematics, Economics and Philosophy. However all his brains couldn't save him from an untimely death from Jaundice at the age of 26. I'll talk a little bit about the not coincidentally named field of Ramsey theory which he pioneered.
