DESCRIPTION:Oxford Mathematics Public Lecture: Ian Griffiths - Cheerios\,
iPhones and Dysons: going backwards in time with fluid mechanics\n\nThurs
day 13 February 2020\n5.00-6.00pm\, Mathematical Institute\, Oxford\n\nHow
do you make a star-shaped Cheerio? How do they make the glass on your sma
rtphone screen so flat? And how can you make a vacuum filter that removes
the most dust before it blocks? All of these are very different challenges
that fall under the umbrella of industrial mathematics. While each of the
se questions might seem very different\, they all have a common theme: we
know the final properties of the product we want to make and need to come
up with a way of manufacturing this. In this talk we show how we can use m
athematics to start with the final desired product and trace the fluid dyn
amics problem ‘back in time’ to enable us to manufacture products that
would otherwise be impossible to produce.\n\nIan Griffiths is a Professor
of Industrial Mathematics and a Royal Society University Research Fellow
in the Mathematical Institute at the University of Oxford. \n\nPlease emai
