Bristol public talks in mathematics: How to make yourself heard at a rock concert

How to communicate effectively in the presence of noise, or over long distances, is a problem of enormous practical importance. For example, one easy way of being heard at a party is to repeat every sentence multiple times. Perhaps there are much more efficient strategies for getting your message across, based on pure mathematics.

This free public talk is part of Ada Lovelace Day, and will be followed by a wine reception.
