Best of both worlds? Questions of scale in science and engineering for society, Attard

About this event

Matter is made of atoms, crowds are formed of people, and financial markets comprise transactions. To understand how each of these behave, we can only get so far by thinking at the top-most level in terms of the material itself, the crowd, and the market.

The individual components are critical, and how they interact with each other often determines the overall behaviour. Predicting how these types of multi-scale systems function is a grand challenge in science and engineering for the 21st Century.

In this talk, you will be shown how research on the flow of gases and liquids at micro and nano scales has parallels with phenomena as diverse as the spread of disease and stock market returns.

Complimentary refreshments will be served at 5:45pm.
