lunchtime talk

This is a free event but please book your place in advance by calling the Box Office on 0115 846 7777. George Green introduced two mathematical concepts: the idea of a potential energy in physical problems, and a way of calculating it for complex systems using what is now called Green's function. Both of these ideas, suitably extended, proved central to the Nottingham design of actively screened coils for Magnetic Resonance Imaging. Emeritus Professor Roger Bowley of the School of Physics explains how the team used Green's techniques in their work.
