MAGIC launch event for 2009

Oct
7
Wed 2009

16:00 - 17:00

Organised by Prof Jeremy Levesley.

Hosted by University of Leicester.

There will be a special lecture to launch the 2009/10 session on Wednesday 7th October 2009 in the afternoon entitled

Two by two

Prof Sir Michael Berry FRS (Bristol)

A tutorial account of families of 2x2 matrices labelled by several parameters will concentrate on the neighbourhood of degeneracies. The emphasis will be on the differences between hermitian and nonhermitian matrices, considered geometric. Physical phenomena in optics and atomic physics where such degeneracies play a crucial role will be described.
This introductory talk by Prof Berry will serves to launch the MAGIC courses for 2009/10 and can be followed by a local get-together.

A gentle introduction to MAGIC

Oct
2
Fri 2009

11:00 - 12:00

Organised by Dr James Blowey.

Hosted by Durham University.

Overview:
  • Background
  • Brief overview of structures
  • What can go right/wrong (the good, the bad and the ugly)
  • Any questions
The slides are available and will focus more on the practical side of things. It may be of interest/use for lecturers too. I'd welcome thoughts anyone might have on this.
