20 Oct 2012: Vist from Gerd Schroeder Turk

October 2012: Gerd Schroeder-Turk visited me from Erlangen to work on problems concerned with dynamics of foams on negatively curved surfaces. The trip was funded WIMICS. Gerd gave two talks titled "Platonic Foam Cells" at IMAPS and another on "The chiral photonic crystal in the butterfly Callophrys Rubi" at IBERS

5 Oct 2012: Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences

October 2012: I gave a joint talk with Denis Weaire at the Issac Newton Institue (as part of the programme on Topological Dynamics in the Physical and Biological Sciences). We spoke about our recent work on the dense packing of hard spheres in cylindrical channels. Click here for a video of that presentation.
