Fluids at Brown, Division of Applied Mathematics Fluids and Thermal Sciences, School of Engineering Joint Seminar Series

Tuesday, October 17, 2017 3:00pm - 4:00pm
Barus and Holley, Room 190

Francesca Bernardi, Ph.D. Candidate Department of Mathematics University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Symmetry-breaking in passive scalars advected by laminar shear flow Abstract: The dispersion of passive tracers in laminar shear flow is a classic problem in fluid dynamics. The boost in the tracer dispersion due to the interplay between advection and diffusion was first described mathematically and observed experimentally by Sir G. I. Taylor in 1953 for laminar flow in a straight circular pipe.

Engineering Seminar: Electrical Sciences and Computer Engineering

Tuesday, October 17, 2017 4:00pm - 5:00pm

Kaushik Sengupta, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering at Princeton will present a talk: "Exploiting Complexity of Sub-wavelength Interactions for Simplicity in Integrated Systems: From Programmable mm-Wave and THz Surfaces to Nano-optical Chip Scale Systems in Silicon". Abstract: Being able to harness, synthesize, manipulate electromagnetic waves and transduce to and extract information from them forms the foundation of nearly all communication, sensing and imaging technologies that have transformed our lives and continue to do so.
