Selected quotation

"Science is a differential equation. Religion is a boundary condition."

(Alan Turing, 1912 - 1954)

I'm not sure what it means, but I like it!


Membership to CARMA offers many benefits and is available by invitation to all University of Newcastle academic staff. Associate membership, also by invitation, is available to external researchers and practitioners for three-year renewable terms. Associate members are expected to visit CARMA with some frequency, typically for a total of three to four weeks in a year, and to be involved in one or more ongoing research projects with CARMA members. CARMA is able to assist with the travel and living costs of such visits.
