Prof. Sir Michael Berry, FRS, University of Bristol, UK

LMI Seminar

This series of lectures concerns a substantial and fast-developing new area, linking a number of what were thought to be separate subjects: quantum physics, optical singularities, mathematical function theory, super-resolution microscopy, radar theory... These are subjects that do not form part of the usual student or Ph.D courses, but can be explained without too much high-power theory, and provide a wonderful illustration of the unity of different areas of mathematics and physics.


Lecture 2:

Optical vorticulture, Whewell’s tidal phase singularities, almost-anticipation by Newton, quantum superkicks near vortices, STED microscopy
