Crisp packet fireworks!
The Naked Scientists take you on a whistlestop tour of the world of waves, gases and chemistry. They detonate bombs, electrocute vegetables, turn air into a liquid, reveal the secrets of sun cream, use chemicals to produce bright lights, and launch hydrogenpowered rockets. Definitely not for the faint of heart!

Scientists collect data about genes, stars, and human behavior. Corporations collect data about purchases and products. The government collects data about people and policies. Professor Banks will discuss how these data contain important hidden structure, and the new kinds of statistical procedures that are able to discover it.

A travelling exhibition created by Mathematisches Forchungsinstitut Oberwolfach and hosted by the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences, 8–17 March 2010.
IMAGINARY is an interactive, travelling exhibition from the Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach showing for the first time in the UK.
It contains visualisations and installations taken from algebraic geometry and visitors are invited to interact with the exhibits and create their own mathematical artwork using special software.
Many thanks to Jessica Vardy and the pupils of Sancton Wood School. Generously supported by Adrian Weller, RCUK and the Science Museum.

There are systems whose future is hard to predict (think of the weather). Looking at the heart of this phenomenon  called chaos  we discover that unpredictability ultimately stems from the properties of numbers.

Viruses, such as hepatitis and the common cold, have highly ordered protein containers that encapsulate the viral genomic material. They act as Trojan horses, transporting the genomic material inside a cell to hijack the cellular mechanism and produce new viruses. Insights in how these capsids are organised are key to understanding how viruses work and how they can be defeated. In this talk, Reidun Twarock will explore virus architecture under the mathematical microscope. We will show that symmetry plays a key role for virus structure, and that mathematical tools similar to those used in the study of Penrose tilings provide novel insights that shed new light on viral evolution and on how viruses infect their hosts.
There will be an opportunity after the talk for some handson activities using computer simulations and making of icosahedra models.
Reidun Twarock is Professor of Mathematical Biology at the University of York. She was a keynote speaker at the 2007 BA Festival of Science, and LMS Public lecturer in 2008.
