Wilder 104
Intended Audience(s): Public
Categories: Lectures & Seminars

Abstract:  The familiar twinkling of starlight or the pattern of sunlight on a pool bottom is the beginning of the phenomenon of branched flow, which applies to both waves and rays.  It is a  beautiful and poorly studied phenomenon, given its ubiquity.  We illustrate, explain,  and discuss the applicability across many fields of science.
