Hello everyone, This week’s talk will be the first SUMS talk of 2008 given by an honours student, Yinan Zhang. When asked what his talk was actually on, Yinan gave a very brief reply: "I will be discussing how operations research helped to save British shipping during the World Wars." Apparently his talk will cover the mathematical areas of operation theory and logic (and maybe some other areas). This should be quite an interesting talk, perhaps the most "applied" talk we’ve had so far! Talk: How to Sink a Submarine Speaker: Yinan Zhang Location: Carslaw 451 Time: Friday, May 23, 1-2pm I hope to see you there! Gareth
