Thursday 30 May, 5.30pm - 7pmKeighton Auditorium Lecture Theatre
What have the quantum spectrum of the chemical element Helium and the noise emanating from the vibrations of - say - a tractor in common? Both are in fact manifestations of wave chaotic dynamics and can be studied and better understood using wave asymptotic methods. Following the work of Heisenberg, Chladni and others, Professor Gregor Tanner has worked on understanding the deeper relations between classical and quantum/wave dynamics in problems ranging from atomic physics, quantum graphs, vibro-acoustics and electromagnetism - the latter two with industrial partners such as Jaguar Landrover, Yanmar and NXP Semiconductors.
Gregor Tanner is a Professor of Applied Mathematics and head of the Wave Modelling Research Group at the School of Mathematical Sciences. After studying Physics in Regensburg and Freiburg and working at the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen and the Hewlett-Packard Laboratories in Bristol, he joined the School of Mathematical Sciences in 1998 researching problems in wave chaos theory.
