500 years of Maths at Queens' College: an Old Library Exhibition

This exhibition showcases the history of Queens' College as a place of mathematical learning with books used at the college during its long history. From sixteenth-century

 humanist translations of ancient Greek texts to Charles Babbage's proposition of an 'Analytical Engine', these books document the development (and rejection) of seminal theories, ideas and discoveries. Included are ground-breaking texts by Euclid, Napier, Bernoulli, Laplace, Van Neumann, and many others, with four first editions of key works

 recently donated by Queens' alumna Tara Symeonides (mat. 2001). The exhibition is open 13.30-16.30 until Friday 28th April, and will reopen the last two weeks of term.
