NUCLEATION - A COALITION OF MATHS AND MOLECULES
Wednesday 26 June, 2.00 pm
School of Chemistry, Lecture Theatre B (2.17)

The inaugural seminar of the Leeds Centre for Crystallization.

"What's going on when a crystal forms from solution? In this talk I will look at how our past understanding of the nucleation of crystals, from Ostwald to Volmer and beyond, owes much to a largely unspoken coalition between mathematics and crystallography. A look at current developments will show how new experimental results are challenging this status quo."
