Crystals, symmetry and the way to knowledge
Lecturer: Michael Wendschuh

Crystals have always fascinated people - as if they had been cut perfectly by a mysterious hand and brought into a highly symmetrical shape, they don't seem to belong in our irregular world at all. And yet it is precisely this perfection that reveals a great deal about the internal organization of the crystals when you take a close look at them.
The path from the mere observation of crystals to an understanding of their inner nature is a prime example of the way in which scientific knowledge is gained. We will follow this exciting path in the lecture.
