DESCRIPTION:What do maypole dancing\, grocery delivery\, and the quadratic

in a variety of modern settings\, both within mathematics and in our wider
culture. \n\nTara Brendle is a Professor of Mathematics in the School
of Mathematics & Statistics at the University of Glasgow. Her research lie

and topology. She is co-author of 'Braids: A Survey'\, appearing in 'The
Handbook of Knot Theory'.\n\nPlease email external-relations@maths.ox.ac.u
