The Popular Lecture Series in Mathematics was started in 1997 by the Mathematics Association of IIT, Bombay. As of April 2004, forty one lectures have been held under this series on diverse topics in Mathematics and its applications. The lectures are aimed at a wide spectrum of audience. Besides mathematicians, we also invite scientists and engineers who apply Mathematics in research and development in their area. The speakers are instructed to start from the basics and build their lecture so that beginners as well as experts can benefit. The lectures are typically held on Fridays at 5.05 PM and are of 75 minutes duration.
