Physics of the Impossible
Professor Michio Kaku poses the question: "where does the realm of science fiction end?" He explores the actual possibilities of ideas such as time travel, force fields, teleportation, star ships and invisibility. On Friday May 29th 2009, world renowned physicist, broadcaster and author, Professor Michio Kaku spoke at the Said Business School, Oxford as part of the St Cross College Science Lecture Series. Presenting "Physics of the Impossible", Professor Kaku believes that 'anything that is no

Narrative Models: A Database Approach to Modeling Medieval Cairo
This paper explores the use of three-dimensional simulations to investigate transformations of urban form in medieval Cairo, and lessons about using computers to support historical visualization. Our first attempt to create a single extremely detailed model of Cairo proved unworkable. From this experience we developed a database approach to organizing modeling projects of complex urban environments. The database consists of several complete models at different levels of abstraction. This approa
