In this talk, Ian Jones will present mathematical models, developed during the course of the last few hundred years, which explain some of the features of the rainbow. Such features include the circular shape of the primary and secondary bows, Alexander’s dark band, order of the colours, angle of the bows in the sky and many others. These will be discussed with the help of some secondary school geometry.
