A Few Physics Wonders - Superoscillations series - Divergent series -


Sir Michael Berry came visiting Chapman campus ready to talk about some of the beautiful things that physicists actually do. Intentionally accessible to anybody, this free and open to the community colloquium uses non-technical language and a multi-media experience. A Few Physics Wonders is generally appealing to an audience interested in science, especially those who find the work of other great physicists, like Einstein or Hawking, inspirational.

Following his fun, standing-room-only popular talk, Sir Michael Berry hosted an open, five-part series of technical seminars focused on Superoscillations, and concluded with a supplementary sixth presentation from his Divergent Series: From Thomas Bayes's Bewilderment to Today's Resurgence Via the Rainbow.
