Logarithms: Mobile Phones, Modelling & Statistics?

This event has finished Took place on: Wednesday, 22nd May 2024

 Free

Logarithms were perhaps once thought of as just an old-fashioned way to do sums on slide rules. But they underpin much of modern life, from modelling the COVID pandemic to Claude Shannon’s mathematical theory of information (which makes mobile phones a reality) and making sense of Cristiano Ronaldo’s crazy Instagram follower numbers.

This lecture will explore the basics and history of logarithms, and then show how they are a natural way to represent many models and datasets.

The talk will be given by Professor Oliver Johnson.
