Oxford University Press is proud to return to the FT Weekend Oxford Literary Festival with another series of soap box talks from the very short introductions series.  These free, 15-minute talks feature expert authors from the series and take place twice a day in the Blackwell’s Marquee, next to the Sheldonian Theatre.

Emeritus professor of mathematics David Hand explains the common mathematical framework underlying all measurement, the main approaches to measurement, and the challenges involved.
