`Toy models'


Would you like to come see some toys?

`Toys' here have a special sense: objects of daily life which you can find or make in minutes, yet which, if played with imaginatively, reveal surprising behaviors that keep scientists puzzling for a while. We will see table-top demos of many such toys and visit some of the applied mathematics that they open up.

Coffee will be served at 12:00 before the lecture
at Schreiber building 006
