Shaken but not Stirred: Using Mathematics in Earthquakes

Professor Hinke Osinga, University of Auckland 

Earthquakes can cause substantial damage to buildings in ways that are still not well understood. How can we predict whether a building will survive an earthquake with full structural integrity? We will explain how mathematics can help answer this question and why the answer may surprise you more than you think.

Refreshments will be served before the presentation.
