Resonance is the phenomenon through which two or more oscillating systems interact. It’s a process that occurs everywhere in nature, allowing the transmission of energy and information via wave signals. For instance, via light transmission the plants on Earth are able to absorb the energy coming from the Sun. Even our computers and smartphones use resonance to transmit bytes to the world wide web using wireless connections.
In this talk, Davide Proment from the School of Mathematics at UEA will explain the fundamentals of resonance using examples from everyday life. He will also present some scientific historical remarks and basic mathematical models used to describe this ubiquitous physical mechanism. If you have an appetite for science, particularly mathematics and physics, then this talk is for you!
