Event description

Description

Speaker: Thomas Jordan

Abstract:

Going way back, bakers have had to concoct various ways to efficiently mix dry fruit through dough so it is evenly distributed. How can we describe ‘even distribution’ mathematically and can we find a mathematical process which simulates the baker’s technique? And finally, how could these ideas connect to current research in dynamical systems? Come on down to find out more.

**This lecture will also be live streamed on the BoB lectures Facebook page.**


Bio:

Dr Thomas Jordan Senior Lecturer in Pure Mathematics, School of Mathematics, Thomas' research focuses on dimension theory in dynamical systems.Thomas' interests include connections between multifractal analysis, large deviations and the thermodynamic formalism, self-similar and self-affine sets, non-conformal dynamical systems and Fourier transforms for invariant measures.


*The Best of Bristol lecture series is open to members of the public.
