On Tuesday June 2nd, the University of Greenwich is pleased to present 
an afternoon exploring the history of mathematics & computing in the 
appropriate setting of the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich:
      Donald Knuth: /"History of Computer Science versus History of 
Mathematics"/
      Karen Parshall: /"Victorian Algebra"/

Don Knuth is a retired professor of Computer Science at Stanford 
University, where he joined the faculty forty years ago. His 
multi-volume work-in-progress entitled "The Art of Computer Programming" 
has been translated into twelve languages. His software is used to 
format the pages of most of the world's books and journals about 
mathematics and physics. He tries to write computer programs that are 
actually a pleasure to read.

Karen Parshall is Professor of History and Mathematics at the University 
of Virginia. She works on the history of science and mathematics in 
America and the history of 19th- and 20th-century algebra, and her 
research currently focuses on the life, times, and mathematical work of 
the British mathematician, James Joseph Sylvester. The organisers are 
grateful to the London Mathematical Society for support for Professor 
Parshall's visit.

Date:   Tuesday 2nd June 2009, 2-4pm
Venue: Burnside Lecture Theatre, King William Court (KW315),
           Old Royal Naval College, Park Row, Greenwich, London SE10 9LS
All welcome. Admission free.
