Science and Engineering at The University of Edinburgh

Theory Club

Explanatory note

This is a roughly weekly series of didactical blackboard talks focussing on some theoretical aspect of Condensed Matter, Biological, and Statistical Physics. The range of topics is sufficiently loosely defined that core interests within SUPA's CMMP theme, the agent-based modelling of complex systems relevant to the NANIA project, or whatever else takes our fancy are all accommodated.

Actually, the best way to find out what we talk about is to look at the list of titles below.

If you're wanting to receive mailings about these talks, request a topic for discussion, or - even better - offer to lead the discussion yourself, please email either Juraj Szavits-Nossan, Peter Mottishaw or Chay Paterson.

Week beginning 26 October 2014

Wednesday 29 Oct 14 - 11:30am

The Theory of Colour

Tom Ives

I will give a brief overview of colour theory from a physicists perspective and start by talking about what colour actually is and how we can describe it mathematically. Then, hopefully, I will show how that can be used to select a good colour palette for making graphs.
