Maths & Physics News

Congratulations to the winners of the Lincoln Mathematics Challenge 2020-21 and a big thank you to all participants! A very stiff competition made the choices difficult for the Competition Committee, and each place had to be awadred jointly to several winners. The Awards Ceremony has taken place on 13 February 2021 as an online event, which included a public lecture by Prof. Evgeny Khukhro “The role of Algebra in Mathematics“. The virtual audience gave rounds of applause to the winners, who received their certificates and virtual trophies from the Head of Lincoln School of Mathematics and Physics Prof. Andrei Zvelindovsky. The ceremony and the lecture were streamed on YouTube and the recording can be watched here. Solutions of the problems can be found here. The results are:

Joint 1st prize winners:

Mathematics and Physics Careers Evening 6pm Tuesday 2 March 2021

A mathematics or physics degree opens up a wide range of exciting opportunities, and our recent graduates have gone on to employment or further study in fields including engineering, software development and medical physics. At Lincoln’s School of Mathematics and Physics Online Careers Evening, you will hear from six of our alumni on their first-hand experiences of life after graduation and how their studies at Lincoln have helped set them up for their current and future paths. 

After the talks from our alumni, you will have the opportunity to chat with them and also speak to Lincoln staff from our Careers and Employability team and the School of Mathematics and Physics.
