William Rowan Hamilton is universally recognised as the greatest mathematician, and arguably the greatest scientist, that Ireland has produced to date. On Monday 17th October official Hamilton Day celebrations will take place, promoting the lasting legacy of an Irish man who made a seminal contribution to the world around us today.
On this episode of Ibec Voices, we are joined by Ibec CEO Danny McCoy and Dr Mary Canning, Royal Irish Academy President, to discuss upcoming Hamilton Day celebrations and the fascinating story of William Rowan Hamilton. Later on in the episode Danny will speak to Professor Avi Widgerson, Herbert H. Maass Professor of Mathematics at the Institute for Advanced Studies, Princeton University, who will deliver the 2022 RIA Hamilton Lecture on ‘Cryptography: Secrets and Lies, Knowledge and Trust’.
