Simons Foundation Lectures

Mathematics and Computer Science: Waves

The theme of the 2023 lecture series in mathematics and computer science is “Waves.” The equations that describe waves are crucial tools for understanding everything from how sound propagates to the behavior of quantum particles. This set of talks will explore the richness of the wave equation and its non-linear extensions in general relativity, particle physics, hydrodynamics, optics, quantum mechanics and electrodynamics.
