We will review what we know about the make up and evolution of our Universe. How old is it, how big is it, what’s it got in it? What is determining its evolution, where is it likely to end up? How did it start? Why is there so much we don’t understand about it ? … Continued
In this presentation two scientists from SINTEF will talk about their research. Then we will hear more about optimal hydropower and how SINTEF apply the most advances Norwegian science infrastructures to create innovation, and new technology for Norwegian industry.
Vi skal se litt på hva matematikkens største uløste problem handler om. Vi skal ta noen sveip gjennom historien, fra Euler til vår tids matematikk, og vi vil diskutere spørsmål av typen: Er det noen grunn til å tro at Riemann-hypotesen er sann, og er det trolig at noen av oss vil få oppleve at … Continued
I dette lekne, fargerike og spennende foredraget får du høre om hvordan abstrakte, matematiske objekter kan visualiseres og konkretiseres og hva algoritmisk kunst er. Roger forteller om sine siste eksperimenter med 3D-printing av kortstokking, laserskjæring av keltiske knuter, labyrinter av speil, sirkelpakking og kreativ programmering. Kom og hør om hvordan matematikk kan oppleves på nye … Continued
In this talk BearingPoints Data & Analytics team together with Bane NOR, will share their journey of the collection of large amounts of sensor data to the railway, physics and algorithms in order to improve and effectivize maintenance of the railway infrastructure.
The importance of studying water and organic molecules is related to their biological relevance. The origin of water oceans and pre-biotic organic molecules on Earth, and the origin of an ancient ocean on Mars, is unsolved. Even today the bulk Earth is cosmically dry (poor in hydrogen, relative to the protoplanetary disk). About 60 Ma … Continued
The structure of matter, fundamental forces and the evolution of our universe are primarily studied in accelerators and with a wide range of astroparticle and astronomical observations. All of these studies are organised as large international projects bringing together the best universities, laboratories and technologies world-wide to build very advanced, and usually large, instruments to … Continued
Did you know that the NASA-vehicle Perserverance which newly landed on Mars have norwegian technology installed? In this talk we will look at Norways role in space exploration.
Your parents and grandparents were most likely taught that our planetary system ended at Pluto, but our discovery of Kuiper Belt in 1992 changed all that. The Kuiper Belt is a large population of icy bodies left over from the formation of the planets — the unused material, so to speak. The discovery changed how … Continued
The Navier-Stokes equations model the flow of every fluid on Earth, but yet we know very little about them. So little in fact, there is currently a $1 million prize for anyone that can help to improve our understanding of how these fascinating equations work. In this talk, Dr Tom Crawford will strip back the … Continued
