A paradox of our digital age is that while we can access the older literature more easily than ever before, all too often our focus is only on the latest postings to the arXiv. In this talk, Professor Ray Goldstein discusses the benefits that can come from reading the old literature – besides being extremely interesting, they can often reveal motivations that have been lost in time. Professor Goldstein is currently the Schlumberger Professor of Complex Physical Systems in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, University of Cambridge. His interdisciplinary research focuses on biological physics, tying in theoretical physics with problems of evolutionary biology, developmental biology, and aspects of nonequilibrium phenomena unique to living systems.
