Science bites – After hours night at the manor

On Wednesday 26th September Andrei Zvelindovsky gave a short talk titled “Newton’s mathematics revolution and modern physics” at the Gravity Fields Festival, the home place of Isaac Newton (Woolsthorpe Manor).

Andrei showed how calculus is used to explain beautiful and enigmatic patterns in one of newest fields of physics – nano-physics. Newton is mostly remembered for his gravity law, his 3 laws of mechanics and proving that the while light consists of all colours of rainbow. However, he also invented the whole new branch of maths – Calculus. It happened, that all our modern physics can be described by this maths.
