“The Physics of Foam”
It’s easy to foam up soapy water, but not to understand the surprising properties of foam. How can it be white and solid when it’s made mostly of gas and a little liquid, neither of which is white or solid? Douglas Durian will explain how foams change over time and some of the excitement they offer as a modern research topic in fundamental physics and mathematics.
