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.

arities - Roger Penrose\, Dennis Lehmkuhl and Melvyn Bragg\n\nTuesday 16 F
ebruary 2021\n5.00-6.30pm\n\nDennis Lehmkuhl: From Schwarzschild’s singu
larity and Hadamard’s catastrophe to Penrose’s trapped surfaces\nRoger
Penrose: Spacetime singularities - to be or not to be?\nRoger Penrose & M
elvyn Bragg: In conversation\n\nWhat are spacetime singularities? Do they
exist in nature or are they artefacts of our theoretical reasoning? Most i
mportantly\, if we accept the general theory of relativity\, our best theo
ry of space\, time\, and gravity\, do we then also have to accept the exis
tence of spacetime singularities?\n\nIn this special lecture\, Sir Roger P
enrose\, 2020 Nobel Laureate for Physics\, will give an extended version o
f his Nobel Prize Lecture\, describing his path to the first general singu
larity theorem of general relativity\, and to the ideas that sprung from t
his theorem. He will be introduced by Dennis Lehmkuhl whose talk will desc
ribe how the concept of a spacetime singularity developed prior to Roger's
work\, in work by Einstein and others\, and how much of a game changer th
e first singularity theorem really was.\n\nThe lectures will be followed b
y an interview with Roger by Melvyn Bragg.\n\nRoger Penrose is the 2020 No
bel Laureate for Physics and Emeritus Rouse Ball Professor in Oxford\nDenn
is Lehmkuhl is Lichtenberg Professor of History and Philosophy of Physics
at the University of Bonn and one of the Editors of Albert Einstein's Coll

DESCRIPTION:Roger Penrose’s work has ranged across many aspects of mathe
matics and its applications from his influential work on gravitational col
lapse to his work on quantum gravity. However\, Roger has long had an inte
rest in and influence on the visual arts and their connections to mathemat
ics\, most notably in his collaboration with Dutch graphic artist M.C. Esc
her. In this lecture he will use Escher’s work to illustrate and explain
important mathematical ideas.\n\nOxford Mathematics is hosting this speci
al event in its Public Lecture series during the conference to celebrate t
he 20th Anniversary of the foundation of the Clay Mathematics Institute. A
fter the lecture Roger will be presented with the Clay Award for the Disse
mination of Mathematical Knowledge.\n\n5.30-6.30pm\nMathematical Institute
