SITN Lecture - Math in Nature: Finding order in chaos

  • Nov 13, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Join us for the next lecture in Harvard University's Science in the News Fall Lecture Series, Math in Nature: Finding order in chaos.

For those of you not familiar with SITN's lecture format, lectures are free, accessible, and open to the public. All lectures are given entirely by graduate students at Harvard and focus on hot topics in science research and news.

All lectures are on Wednesdays starting at 7 PM at the Armenise Amphitheater at Harvard Medical School. A team of three graduate students each present a 30-40 minute segment, with breaks for questions and refreshments. The lectures last for about two hours, and are often followed by lab tours.

They will have light refreshments before the lecture (coffee, tea, cookies, etc.)

Here is the full fall schedule:

Best way to get there is by T.  The closest Green Line stops are the E train at Longwood Medical Area, and the D train at Longwood.  The Harvard Medical School Quadrangle is on Longwood Avenue, across from the half traffic circle at Avenue Louis Pasteur.  The Armenise Amphitheater is the first building on the left, as you're facing into the quadrangle.

There is parking at the Masco Garage at 375 Longwood.  Evening rate is $7

We'll gather on the benches outside the main entrance of the Courtyard Cafe (or in the lobby if it's wet out). We should meet at 6:30 so we can go in and have refreshments before the lecture.  Afterwards, we can go to Bertucci's down the street for more food and drinks.

Hope to see you there :)

    Doreen--can we go on a field trip? Bill Nye is going to the Creation Museum for a debate! http://tv.msn.com/tv/article.aspx?news=845532

      Entry to the event is $25. Don't want to give my money to the museum--what do we do??

      OMG maybe we could establish a tax-deductible protest organization and go en masse

    Yes, I liked some of the questions more than the content of the presentations; the first one was WAAAAY too basic for our audience's level of knowledge.

    Basic chaos theory 101, as outlined in James Gleick's 1987 book Chaos. Interesting stuff if you've never seen it before, but nothing really new here. I was hoping to hear more about new medical insights driven by the mathematics of recursive biological processes.

    No wait-list? I plan to come anyway.

      Took the limit off, since most people probably won't show up anyway.
