Dr Colva Roney-Dougal, St. Andrew’s University
Symmetry, Chance & Determinism

By playing some games with symmetries, we'll discover the surprising fact that choosing randomly can give the same answer (almost) every time!

Dr Hilary Weller, University of Reading
How Climate Models Work and Could They Be Better?

Hilary Weller will describe some of the physics behind how the real climate works, some of the mathematics involved in creating
a computer model of the climate to make climate predictions and how climate data is gathered in order to test the models. We will see that, although climate models are far from perfect, some predictions can be made with confidence.
