John von Neumann–Lecture

The John von Neumann–Lecture is held in honor of John von Neumann, a scientist who symbolizes interaction between many fields of mathematics and applications. He gave major contributions to research fields as diverse as functional analysis, quantum mechanics, ergodic theory, operator algebras, geometry, topology, numerical analysis, game theory, and linear programming.

The lecture is held each term by a distinguished mathematician or scientist from a related field. Afterwards there is a get-together by courtesy of the Mathematical Institutes.
