Twenty first meeting of the Transpennine Topology Triangle

Department of Mathematics
Wednesday October 27th 1999


All talks in N6

We expect to go to eat and drink nearby in the early evening.

The plan is to meet in the staff common room which is N2 (so on N floor) by 12:30pm and then go together to the Mumford Room in Staff House for lunch. Latecomers can make their own way there. From the entrance to the Maths building take the widest path. It will lead you between a red brick building and a black brick one. Then you will see a building partly supported on columns. This is Staff House: the Mumford Room is on the first floor.

Anyone who wishes to participate is welcome: we shall operate the usual arrangements for assistance with travel expenses. Please email Peter Symonds (office P8, tel 0161 200 3675) (or Nige Ray, John Greenlees, or John Hunton if you are interested, so we can make approximately the right amount of tea and coffee.

How to get there

If you don't know how to find UMIST there is more information at UMIST Homepage, but here are some practical instructions. UMIST is very close to Manchester Piccadilly railway station (the main station for Manchester), but the route is not obvious. Leave the station by the main exit. Immediately on leaving turn sharply right and you will see a small flight of steps leading down. Take these: you will emerge in a tunnel. Turn left and you will get to a busy road with the small Hotel International in front of you. Cross over the road and turn left. Watch out for the trams. Ignore any signs pointing to UMIST. You will go under a railway bridge and then you will see a motorway bridge. Just before the motorway bridge on the right is a tall grey concrete building. This is the Mathematics and Social Science building. The entrance is on the other side.
The meeting is partially supported by a Scheme 3 grant from the London Mathematical Society.
