The first lecture explored the links between mathematics and music, presented by Dr Aoife Hunt, with students using probability to create their own short musical composition. The second was on the hidden mathematics in everyday life, presented by Katie Steckles, looking at the way mathematics is used to ensure modern communication methods work.
