The Public Lectures Unveiling Math (PLUM) lecture series are aimed at general audience and focused on promoting mathematics in general by presenting inspiring stories about mathematics. They could be based on an incredible journey for finding fundamental truths or could be about how mathematics is used for real world applications.
With a generous support from Duke iiD, the first PLUM lecture was given in Fall of 2015. Since then, Duke Math has proudly co-sponsored yearly 2-3 lectures. You can visit the links below to view all the past PLUM talks.
The PLUM is currently supported by the generosity of Goh Peng Ooi, Duke Math, and by Duke iiD.
