Tim Palmer: Climate Change, Chaos and Inexact Computing
Speaker(s): Tim Palmer
Abstract: How well can we predict our future climate? If the flap of a butterfly’s wings can change the course of weather a week or so from now, what hope trying to predict anything about our climate a hundred years hence? In this talk I will discuss the science of climate change from a perspective which em... read more

Michael Cates: Bulletproof Custard: Fluids That Stop Flowing When You Push Them Too Hard
Speaker(s): Michael Cates
Abstract: When small, hard particles are suspended in a fluid, they make it more resistant to flow. The higher the particle concentration, the higher the viscosity. Add enough particles and fluid stops flowing entirely, becoming a jammed solid - this makes intuitive sense. Less intuitive and more intriguin... read more
