DESCRIPTION:Oxford Mathematics Public Lecture\n\nEnvisioning Imagination -
Roger Penrose\, Carlo Rovelli and Conrad Shawcross with Fatos Ustek\nThur
sday 27 July\, 2023\n5pm - 6.15pm Andrew Wiles Building\, Mathematical Ins
titute\, Oxford\n\nImagination is the creative force for artists. But what
about mathematicians and scientists? What part does imagination play in t
heir work? What do the artist and the scientist have in common? And how do
they envision things that will never be seen?\n\nIn this panel discussion
two scientists and one artist\, all leaders in their field\, will provide
an answer. They have more in common than you would think.\n\nNobel-prize
winning scientist Roger Penrose is Emeritus Rouse Ball Professor in Oxford
. Carlo Rovelli is a Professor in the Centre de Physique Théorique de Lum
iny of Aix-Marseille Université and the author of several popular science
books including 'Seven Brief Lesson on Physics'. Conrad Shawcross is an a
rtist specialising in mechanical sculptures based on philosophical and sci
entific ideas. His exhibition\, 'Cascading Principles'\, is currently show
ing in the Mathematical Institute.\n\nThe discussion will be chaired by cu
rator and writer Fatos Ustek who is the curator of the 'Cascading Principl
es' exhibition.\n\nThere will be an opportunity to view the exhibition fro
m 4pm on the day of the lecture.\n\nPlease email external-relations@maths.

DESCRIPTION:Oxford Mathematics Public Lectures- The Roger Penrose Lecture\
n\nCarlo Rovelli - Spin networks: the quantum structure of spacetime from
Penrose's intuition to Loop Quantum Gravity\n\nMonday 2 December 2019\n\n
In developing the mathematical description of quantum spacetime\, Loop Qua
ntum Gravity stumbled upon a curious mathematical structure: graphs labell
ed by spins. This turned out to be precisely the structure of quantum spac
e suggested by Roger Penrose two decades earlier\, just on the basis of hi
s intuition. Today these graphs with spin\, called "spin networks" have be
come a common tool to explore the quantum properties of gravity. In this t
alk Carlo will tell this beautiful story and illustrate the current role o
f spin networks in the efforts to understand quantum gravity.\n\nCarlo Rov
elli is a Professor in the Centre de Physique Théorique de Luminy of Aix-
Marseille Université where he works mainly in the field of quantum gravit
y and is a founder of loop quantum gravity theory. His popular-science bo
ok 'Seven Brief Lesson on Physics' has been translated into 41 languages a
nd has sold over a million copies worldwide.\n\n5.30pm-6.30pm\, Mathematic
