    Lorentz Center Highlights

A decade of discoveries

Wim van Saarloos,

Instituut Lorentz, LION,
and Lorentz Center, Leiden

ABSTRACT: This week it is 10 years ago that the first workshop was held at the Lorentz Center. In celebration of this, I will discuss three discoveries that grew out of workshops that were held at the Lorentz Center:
1) the accurate determination of the Hubble constant;
2) the resolution of an important issue in thermally driven turbulence;
3) a proof of the Andre-Oort conjecture.
After the discoveries we offer anyone interested the opportunity to take a short tour through the Lorentz Center.
