Event Name A century of symmetry discovered: a crystallographer's tale
Start Date 31st Jan 2014 8:00pm
End Date 31st Jan 2014 8:00pm
Duration N/A

The scientific legacy of W.H. and W. L. Bragg, both former Directors of the Ri, is both wide ranging and of crucial significance to modern scientific thought. Judith Howard will discuss the concepts of symmetry, which are not exclusive to crystallography, but are embedded deep in its mathematical foundations and essential to the application of Bragg’s Law in the solution of crystal structures.

This Discourse is the 2014 Bragg Lecture.
