Exactly Solvable Systems in Quantum Field Theory


A meeting to celebrate the 60th birthday of Professor Ed Corrigan, Head of the Department of Mathematics, was held in York on 10-11 August 2006. Details can be found here.

Alice and Bob in the Quantum Wonderland


The Merchant Adventurers' Science Discovery Lecture, given in York on 7 March 2006. The PowerPoint file for this lecture can be seen by clicking here.
