The Great Wave, by Beth Neville

Here is the speaker's description of his talk:

   "If we drop a stone in the middle of a still pond, we can watch the ripples move outwards. What happens when we drop several stones at once? The simplest interactions have been mathematically described for centuries, but the more complex ones involve very modern ideas which we will explore. "


Thursday, April 13; 6:50 to 8:00 PM
Hill Center, room 323, Busch Campus.   All students are welcome—and their professors too.
