Guest Public Lecture by Professor Simon Cox

on March 2, 2015, from 5.30pm to 7pm, in the EMMTEC lecture theatre on the main Brayford Campus of the University of Lincoln

Behind the apparent randomness of the foam on your bath, in your washing machine, or in your glass, are strict geometrical rules that dictate the arrangements of bubbles and soap films. From minimal surfaces to varicose veins, this talk will explain how mathematics contributes to the many uses of foams.
