Scientific Exposition by Dr. Adil Mughal
Morry invited Dr. Adil Mughal to give a talk/presentation on the physics of soap bubbles at the Olafur Arnalds gig on Saturday night. Adil presented a lecture entitled, ‘Soap films, surface tension and computation’. He demonstrated how soap film can be used as a type of analogue computer to solve complex problems. The talk referenced the work of Escher as well as many other artists and physicists. This was Adils first experience of presenting work to a non-academic audience. The presentation was followed by a set from Olafur Arnalds who is from Iceland. Liondialer from Manchester also played.
