Inaugural Lecture - Valery Smyshlyaev: Living in a multi-scale world (and making a mathematical sense of it)
Room 505, 5th floor |
25 Gordon Street | WC1H 0AY |
Professor Valery P Smyshlyaev, Head of Applied Mathematics Group, UCL
Nearly everything around us displays ‘multiple scale’ effects, where interactions between the ‘smaller’ and the ‘larger’ often lead to unusual effects. These can sometimes be explained, predicted, and quantified using tools of mathematical analysis of multi-scale partial differential equations. This lecture will explore some examples from high-frequency scattering and from physics of ‘metamaterials’.
It will be argued that mathematics not only subjects ideas based on physical intuition to scrutiny of rigorous mathematical analysis, and assists in assessing the accuracy of the physical models (and of their possible limitations), but also leads to rigorously deriving novel mathematical models displaying new physical effects as well as designing new efficient numerical schemes.
