PIRSA:04060000  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
The Stability of the Solar System
Speaker(s): Scott Tremaine
Abstract: For over three hundred years, physicists and mathematicians have been trying to understand how stable the Earth really is. Could gravitational forces from other planets lead to drastic changes in Earth’s orbit? Will we collide with other planets or be ejected into interstellar space?

Proofs and Pictures: The Role of Visualization in Mathematical and Scientific Reasoning
Speaker(s): James Robert Brown
Abstract: Do you have to see it to believe it? James Robert Brown, Professor of Philosophy at the University of Toronto, will discuss the highly interesting but controversial topic of the legitimate role of visual thinking in mathematics and science. Examples of picture proofs and thought experiments will be ... read more
