From lichen to lightning
As part of "The Beauty in Science", an exhibition of images from Lancaster science, Dr Amanda Turner gave a public lecture on her research on the mathematics of random growth on Tuesday 24th September.
It shows an example of a planar random growth process which grows by particles randomly attaching themselves to the outside of the cluster. This random fractal growth model describes how minerals cluster together and has many applications in physics and chemistry as well as industrial processes.
