Our final talk – yes, final talk! – of this year is given by Professor Eric Lauga. Details below, hope to see lots of you there!
How to Build Mathematical Models
Professor Eric Lauga (DAMTP)
11 March, Winstanley Lecture Theatre, 8:30PM
Everybody knows what “Mathematics” is but ask around and you will quickly realise that nobody really knows what “Applied Mathematics” means. In this talk I will use research drawn from the world of physics and biology to convey what it means to be an applied mathematician. In particular, I will explain how one goes about building a mathematical model, what approximate solutions are and why sometimes you don’t have a choice and need to use a computer.
