The Landau Lecture series

Edmund Landau The Landau lecture series is a series of three lectures by a distinguished mathematician on the subject of his choice. It is usually suggested that one lecture be accessible to the university scientific community at large and the additional two lectures may be more specialized and of interest only to professional mathematicians and specialists.

Edmund Landau (1877-1938)
Edmund Landau (1877-1938)
Edmund Landau and the Hebrew University

The Landau lectures were formerly (1991-2010) under the auspices of The Edmund Landau Minerva Center for Research in Mathematical Analysis and Related Areas
