The London Mathematical Society Popular Lectures present exciting topics in mathematics (and its applications) to a wide audience. Each year, the LMS Popular Lectures feature two lecturers, who have been chosen for their mathematical distinction and communication skills. The Society aims to present a wide range of mathematical topics in the lectures, which are suitable…
Dense interstellar molecular clouds are many, many times more tenuous than the best laboratory vacuums. However, the clouds are so big that they cause self-generated gravitational fields and collapse, over about 100 thousand years. This process converts two solar masses of gas and dust into stars in our Galaxy every year. Many of the new stars are initially surrounded by disks, in which Earth-like…
