Episode 14 - Lunch Hour Lectures - Spring 2011

Building scientific models with computers

Model building is one of the oldest scientific activities and is essential for allowing us to understand the complex reality of nature. Modern computers have allowed scientists to develop models of unprecedented accuracy and detail, and this lecture will explore and illustrate some aspects of the contemporary field, using examples ranging from cosmology and geosciences to engineering and materials sciences. The power of modern visualisation techniques will also be illustrated.

This lecture marks 2011 as the International Year of Chemistry.
