Date changed from 21 October.

Abstract: There are a number of ways in which topology intrudes into bits of mathematics where it apparently has no business whatsoever. I’ll give an example of this, and then ask the question: is it possible to do maths in such a way that topology is welcome from the beginning, rather than an unwanted late visitor? To attend this talk, you don’t have to know any topology: I’ll draw squiggles occasionally.

This talk is part of the The Archimedeans (CU Mathematical Society) series.
