A century of symmetry discovered: a crystallographer’s tale

Celebrate 100 years of crystallography and learn how essential symmetry is to this work.

The scientific legacy of W.H. and W. L. Bragg, both former Directors of the Ri, is both wide ranging and of crucial significance to modern scientific thought. Judith Howard will discuss the concepts of symmetry, which are not exclusive to crystallography, but are embedded deep in its mathematical foundations and essential to the application of Bragg’s Law in the solution of crystal structures.
