Mini-course/workshop on the application of computational mathematics to plasma physics

June 24 @ 8:30 am - June 27 @ 5:00 pm

https://maths.anu.edu.au/news-events/events/plasma-physics Plasma is the “fourth state of matter", consisting of electrons and ions that are not bonded to each other. Plasma physics studies the collective behaviour of plasmas and their interaction with electromagnetic field and gravity, and has a wide range of applications such as controlled fusion, space propulsion, astrophysics, solar physics and material processing. Numerical solution and simulation play a key role in plasma physics, especially for complicated geometry and highly nonlinear processes. Computational mathematics is deeply embedded in…

MSI Colloquium, Dr Stuart Hudson, Acting Head, Theory Department, Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory

June 27 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Can constructing “chaotic coordinates” help to understand transport in Non-Integrable Dynamical Systems? Authors: S. R. Hudson, R. L. Dewar, P. Helander The structure of the toroidal magnetic fields has a profound impact on transport in fusion energy plasmas. Understanding the nature of tangled and chaotic magnetic fields is hence of immense importance. It is also a formidable mathematical challenge. Magnetic field lines are trajectories of Hamiltonian systems, and in toroidally-symmetric geometries, such as a tokamak, the field can be described…

2019 EINSTEIN LECTURE – Elisabetta Barberio on Dark Matter

August 15 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Roundhouse, UNSW Sydney, University of New South Wales, Anzac Parade
Kensington, NSW 2052 Australia
+ Google Map

There are phenomena in our Universe that are almost beyond our realm of understanding – what lies in the dark space between the stars? How can we measure things that are invisible? What prevents the galaxies from expanding into oblivion? One explanation is the existence of dark matter, otherwise undetectable because it is composed of particles that do not absorb, reflect or emit light. We can only assume that it is there because of its impact on ordinary matter, so…
