災難が来る前に:大災害を予想する試み

Florin Diacu, Ph.D., ヴィクトリア大学統計数学部

津波、地震、台風、噴火、気候の急変、隕石の衝突、疫病の流行、株式暴落などは予想できるだろうか。この秋に出版される「大災害」という題の本に基づいて、科学者達が直面する極端な出来事を予想することの難しさについて話をする。

この講演はフィールド数学研究所との共催です。

講義後Q&A、無料茶菓。

Before Tragedy Strikes: The Quest to Predict Megadisasters

Florin Diacu, Ph.D., Department of Mathematics and Statistics, University of Victoria

Can we predict tsunamis, earthquakes, hurricanes, volcanic eruptions, sudden climate changes, cosmic impacts, deadly pandemics, and stock market crashes? This talk, based on a popular science book entitled Megadisasters, which will be published in the fall of 2009 by Princeton University Press in North America and Oxford University Press in the rest of the English speaking world, deals with the problems researchers face when trying to forecast extreme events.

* This lecture is co-sponsored by the Field Institute for Research in Mathematical Science.

FREE public one-hour lectures followed by a question period and refreshment.

University of Toronto Medical Science Building J.J.R. McLeod Auditorium
1 King's College Circle (TTC Queens Park Station)
