Crossing the boundaries of subject and specialism

Stephen Hawking, who was a constant friend to the Institute, said: “When we research across boundaries of subject and specialism, and delve deep into the mysteries of mathematical theory, we expand our understanding and illuminate the unknown.  The Newton Institute exists to make this happen, and I have greatly valued my involvement with it”. Crossing the boundaries of subject and specialism is true of so many of the Institute’s programmes: it was true for the 1994 programme on Geometry and Gravity where Stephen Hawking and Sir Roger Penrose memorably debated The Nature of Space and Time over a series of 6 lectures; and it was equally true for the 2015 programme on Coupling geometric PDEs with physics for cell morphology, motility and pattern formation (CGP).
