Best of Bristol lectures start today

7 02 2013

Today at the Victoria Rooms will see the start of the third series of the Best of Bristol lectures, where lecturers from the University of Bristol will be giving free 50-minute talks at 1.10pm so everybody can sample some of the work that takes place behind the university walls.

This afternoon’s lecture is by Professor Alan Champneys, Head of the Queen’s School of Engineering, who will look at “the surprising effects that nonlinear relationships have on the world around us”, whatever that means.

The full lecture series is:

  • February 7 – ‘Linearity breeds contempt,’ Professor Alan Champneys, Engineering
  • February 21 – ‘Inside the music of Hildegrade von Bingen,’ Dr Emma Hornby, Music
  • February 28 – ‘No more drugs for Superbugs – the end of the antibiotic age?’ Dr Matthew Avison, Cellular and Molecular Medicine
  • March 7 – ‘Pixels, patterns, phenotypes – computers for fingerprinting life,’ Dr Tilo Burghardt, Computer Science
  • March 14 – ‘What is new in the pension ‘crisis’ and can economics help?’ Dr Edmund Cannon, Economics
