  1. Maths for physics

    Course Date: Thu 2 Nov 2017
    Location on this date: KS - Keeley Street
    Mathematics is sometimes described as the language of physics. We will look at the essential topics required for a fuller engagement with physics including algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus, and vectors, with reference to their application to specific physical situations. You will build a mathematical tool box applicable to many areas of science.

  5. Guest lecture - A short history of our world : from the Big Bang to the arrival of Homo Sapiens

    Course Date: Fri 16 Feb 2018
    Location on this date: KS - Keeley Street
    Ian Crawford, Professor of Planetary Science and Astrobiology at Birkbeck presents a concise history of our world from the Big Bang to the evolution of Homo sapiens some 2 million years ago. He addresses the origins and evolution of stars and the chemical elements, the solar system, and evolution of life on Earth. The aim is to provide a scientific pre-history of humanity up until the time that 'real' human history takes over. Ian Crawford is Professor of Planetary Science and Astrobiology at Birkbeck, University of London. Crawford is a specialist in the science and exploration of the Moon and in the search for life in the Universe.
