Public Lecture — Physics Olympiads and How to Train a "Genius"
16 mar 2023 • University of Wolverhampton, Royaume-Uni
Organisateur:
Institute of Physics (IOP)
Résumé:
The International Physics Olympiad (IPhO) branched from its somewhat more famous and acknowledged mathematical ancestor. Just like the latter, the physics olympiads helped to recognise and develop countless talents and brought many geniuses into the world of physics research. Dr Cherotchenko will give a tour of the movement's history and will share her experience in training young physics prodigies as well as her thoughts on how independent original research is different from solving extremely hard olympiad problems in physics. A talk not to be missed for amateurs of solving difficult problems, in real or life, as well as for anybody interested in competition at the highest level.

Public Lecture — Electric Vehicle Charging
16 mar 2023 • Keele University, Staffordshire, Royaume-Uni
Organisateur:
Institute of Physics (IOP)
Résumé:
The electrification in this world is being accelerated due to obvious environmental reasons and electric mobility is an important contributor for this transition. To make this happen, it is essential to have an equivalent penetration of electric vehicle (EV) chargers so the infrastructure is there to support the growth. Also, it is important to offer the best EV charging experience for the drivers as well as asset management solution for the owners. In this talk, Tianning Xu, the Director of Engineering from ChargePoint, a leading electric mobility charging solution provider in the market, will explain how and why EV charging is playing a critical role in this transformation as well as outlining the challenges ahead including the implication on the grid/vehicles.

Mary Somerville Lecture — The Poet and the Physicist: Muriel Rukeyser's biography of Josiah Willard Gibbs
21 mar 2023 • ICMS Edinburgh, Royaume-Uni
Organisateur:
The International Centre for Mathematical Sciences (ICMS)
Résumé:
Mary Somerville (1780-1872) was an eminent Scottish scientist of the 19th century. She made important contributions in mathematics and astronomy, such as her paper 'On the magnetizing power of the more refrangible solar rays' in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society in 1826. She was one of the first two women to be elected to the Royal Astronomical Society in 1835 (the other was Caroline Herschel). Her outstanding science was inextricable from her powers of exposition as might be seen in her beautiful book On the Connexion of the Physical Sciences (1834), a best-seller that went through many editions and is often regarded as the first 'popular science' book. Remarkably, the third edition of the book (1836) and subsequent ones contained a discussion, based on tables of observation, about the possibility of an unknown planet perturbing Uranus. This led to the subsequent precise prediction of the position of Neptune by John Couch Adams in 1845.

This lecture series for the general public is on high-level topics at the interface of mathematics and other domains of inquiry commemorates the work and life of Mary Somerville.

Teachers' Conference — What’s in a crystal? – A quantum universe
01 avr 2023 • Santa Barbara, États-Unis
Organisateur:
UC Santa Barbara, Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Résumé:
Carl Sagan is famous for saying that there are more stars in our Universe than there are grains of sand covering the world’s beaches. What Sagan didn’t say is that a single grain of sand has more electrons than stars in the Universe. What do these many electrons do in a crystal? They form a quantum universe. In this conference, we will explore the confluence of recent exciting developments on this many-electron world in crystals.

This Teachers’ Conference, to be held in coordination with a week-long KITP conference entitled “Topology, Symmetry and Interactions in Crystals: Emerging Concepts and Unifying Themes,” will catalyze conversations on this prototype topic of quantum physics and how to bring it to the classrooms.

Les « Cigales » Une semaine autour des mathématiques
17 avr 2023 - 21 avr 2023 • CIRM (Marseille Luminy), France
Organisateur:
CIRM – Centre International de Rencontres Mathématiques
Résumé:
L’école de mathématiques « Les Cigales » a pour vocation de développer l’attractivité des matières mathématiques auprès des jeunes filles afin, au final, de parvenir à plus de parité dans les métiers techniques et scientifiques. Cette école est particulièrement soutenue par la vice-présidence égalité femmes-hommes et lutte contre les discriminations d’Aix-Marseille Université. Durant 5 jours, les lycéennes vont découvrir que les mathématiques sont partout et surtout qu’elles sont accessibles à la plupart des personnes, aux filles comme aux garçons.

Public Lecture — Dangerous Experiments in Physics
20 avr 2023 • University of Wolverhampton, Royaume-Uni
Organisateur:
Institute of Physics (IOP)
Résumé:
As in every other enterprise of exploration, Science can be quite a risky business. Some of the most dangerous experiments ever performed — like the Trinity test, with controlled fusion, with the Large Hadron Collider close to creating black holes, at the Extreme Light Infrastructure on the verge of tearing out space time — are within the realm of Physics (experiments in biology and/or with people can also be notoriously nasty). Dr Khechara and his team, who regularly go where nobody went before, will give an overview of some of the most dangerously mad experiments ever performed and will actually proceed to bring some of them on stage, putting themselves at risk against the elements of nature, in a fight against electricity, radioactivity, gravity, chemistry, light and matter - all in under one hour.

Public Lecture — In Search for the Origin of Mass
11 mai 2023 • University of Wolverhampton, Royaume-Uni
Organisateur:
Institute of Physics (IOP)
Résumé:
One could say that the universe is both very simple and very complicated. It is very simple in the sense that we know of basic fundamental laws and principles that rule its behaviour, from particles to the cosmos as a whole, in an incredible amount of detail. Mass, for instance, one of the key concepts in physics, arises from the so-called Higgs mechanism of breaking the symmetry of a field that becomes nonzero due to its Mexican hat potential. Yet it is complicated because as consequences of such physical laws we are faced with mysteries such as most of the universe consisting of dark matter and dark energy, which are there in the theory to account for what we see, but that is not in plain sight when we look up in the sky. In this final talk of the Wolverhampton lecture series, Professor Nikolopoulos, one of the physicists who discovered the Higgs boson, will discuss the origin of mass in the universe and what we currently know about dark matter.

Organisateur:
Banff International Research Station (BIRS) / UBCO
Résumé:
Geometry is all around us. The circles and triangles of the Ancient Greeks have never left us. Film, art, and architecture ha ve all been touched by mathematics and geometry. 3D printing, robotics, and origami are a new wave of geometry. At Geometry: Education, Art, and Research, leading researchers pair up with educations and artists to push the boundaries of contemporary geometry.
