Prof Colm-Cille Caulfield – The Mathematics of Spin

Tonight’s talk will be given by Professor Colm-Cille Caulfield

Speaker: Prof Colm-Cille Caulfield
Title: The Mathematics of Spin
Abstract: Dynamical systems where there is significant rotation or “spin” are (perhaps) surprisingly common. In this talk, I will discuss the fascinating, and often deeply counter-intuitive, mathematics and physics underlying several examples of interest, including fidget spinners, sport balls, hurricanes and, of course, cocktails.

The talk will take place at 8:30PM on Monday 5 March in the Winstanley Lecture Theatre. As usual there will be free port and juice served before the talk at 8:15PM. This talk is for members only, but there will be a chance to sign up for TMS life membership for £2.50.
