DESCRIPTION:Oxford Mathematics Public Lecture\n\nA mathematical journey th
rough scales - Martin Hairer\n\nThursday 15th September 2022\n5.00-6.00pm\
, Mathematical Institute\, Oxford\n\nThe tiny world of particles and atoms
and the gigantic world of the entire universe are separated by about fort
y orders of magnitude. As we move from one to the other\, the laws of natu
re can behave in drastically different ways\, sometimes obeying quantum ph
ysics\, general relativity\, or Newtonâ€™s classical mechanics\, not to me
ntion other intermediate theories.\n\nUnderstanding the transformations th
at take place from one scale to another is one of the great classical ques
tions in mathematics and theoretical physics\, one that still hasn't been
fully resolved. In this lecture\, we will explore how these questions stil
l inform and motivate interesting problems in probability theory and why s
o-called toy models\, despite their superficially playful character\, can
sometimes lead to certain quantitative predictions.\n\nProfessor Martin Ha
irer is Professor of Pure Mathematics at Imperial College London. He was a
warded the Fields Medal in 2014.\n\nPlease email external-relations@maths.
