It's all about Chemistry!

Peyam Tabrizian (Brown University)

Abstract: Have you ever wondered what a Partial Differential Equation (PDE) is and how it is used to model real life? In this talk, I will give two different PDE models for a chemical reaction and show that they are two different sides of the same coin. Come and see how a simple integration by parts makes all our worries go away! No math knowledge (beyond calculus) and no chemistry knowledge required.

Bio: Peyam Tabrizian (he/him) is currently a Lecturer in the Applied Mathematics Department at Brown University. His specialty lies in the field of nonlinear partial differential equations, and his thesis work was on asymptotic methods for chemical reactions and diffusions. He also has a YouTube channel called "Dr Peyam" which currently has over 166,667 subscribers and close to 1000 videos.
