Bas Edixhoven Memorial Symposium

We are writing to announce the Bas Edixhoven Memorial Symposium to be held at Leiden University
on the afternoon of Friday, 2 June 2023. The symposium will be aimed at a broad mathematical audience.



In memoriam – Vierkant voor Wiskunde      In Memoriam - Bas Edixhoven - Universiteit Leiden      Bas Edixhoven - Wikipedia    


The afternoon will feature talks by Hendrik Lenstra and Jaap Top on mathematics with connections to art,
a topic that Bas was particularly fond of. Hendrik Lenstra will talk about a famous print of Escher, and Jaap

Top's talk will include Bas' own take on a sculpture that he had seen in the Guggenheim museum in Bilbao.
There will be drinks afterwards.

The exact program and location will be announced in due time on the website


which also contains a link to a registration form. Registration is free, but mandatory, due to the limited capacity

of the venue. The registration is open until at least 15 May.

We are looking forward to seeing many of you there.

On behalf of the organisers,

Ronald van Luijk  

When: Friday June 2nd, 2023
