Event description

Description

Come and join us on Tuesday 22 August 2017 at 5:30 pm for 6 pm and until 7:30 pm for the fifth ResearchNight.it organized by the Network of Italian Researchers in the Cape (NIRC) and the Italian Consulate in Cape Town. The Centre for the Book at 62 Queen Victoria Street (Gardens) will host a talk by Prof Fabio Bagarello, Full Professor of Mathematical Physics at the University of Palermo, Italy. The talk, which will be given in English, will start at 6 pm and will be followed by a Q&A. A glass of wine before and/or after the talk will also be provided.

According to Galileo, "la matematica e' l'alfabeto con cui Dio ha scritto il mondo’' (“mathematics is the alphabet with which God has written the universe”). The use of mathematics is essential in the description of dynamical systems, both in microscopic and macroscopic cases. It is perhaps less known that a mathematical model may be applied in contexts which seem to be very far from its mathematical formulation. This talk will outline a mathematical approach toward the description of scenarios drawn from daily life such as political alliances, love stories and migration flows.

Prof Fabio Bagarello graduated in Physics in Palermo, and took his PhD in Elementary Particles at SISSA in Trieste. Since 2010 he has been Full Professor of Mathematical Physics at the University of Palermo since 2010. He wrote almost 200 papers and several books. He collaborates with colleagues in Japan, Canada, France, Brazil, Czech Republic, Russia as well as in South Africa.
