On Wednesday 26th September Andrei Zvelindovsky gave a short talk titled “Newton’s mathematics revolution and modern physics” at the Gravity Fields Festival, the home place of Isaac Newton (Woolsthorpe Manor). Andrei showed how calculus is used to explain beautiful and enigmatic patterns in one of newest fields of physics – nano-physics. Newton is…
From June 25th to June 27th 2018 the School of Mathematics and Physics hosted a CECAM workshop “Nano-structured soft matter: a synergy of approaches to amphiphilic and block copolymer systems” bringing together experts in two research fields of soft matter physics: block co-polymers and lipid amphiphilic systems. The aim of the workshop was to facilitate… Read More ›
On Sunday 2nd October Fiona ran in the Lincoln Half marathon, the first to be held in the city for around 25 years. The route started from the Lincolnshire show ground, north of the city, and made its way into the city, winding around the Cathedral, through the grounds of the Castle and heading down… Read More ›
