  • Séminaire PMMH - David Saintillan (University of California San Diego)
    Vendredi 20 septembre 11:00-12:00 - Salle réunion PMMH 1
    Viscous dynamics of passive and active microfilaments
    Elastic filaments and semiflexible polymers are ubiquitous in biology, where they play a role in cell mechanics and locomotion as well as for fluid transport on the microscale. In this talk, I will discuss two problems involving the interaction of such filaments with fluid flows. The first problem focuses on the (...)
  • Séminaire PMMH-Arezki Boudaoud (ENS Lyon)
    Vendredi 27 septembre 11:00-12:00 - Salle réunion PMMH 1
    From tissue mechanics to plant morphogenesis
    The form of organisms relies on the mechanical properties of their cells and tissues. In order to help understanding how plants grow and reach well-defined shapes, we developed a set of experimental and theoretical approaches to quantify tissue mechanics in living plants at multiple scales and to relate such (...)
  • Séminaire PMMH - Jean Comtet (EPFL)
    Vendredi 4 octobre 11:00-12:00 - Salle réunion PMMH 1
    Soft matter and mechanics at the molecular scale : from the rheology of few-atoms gold junctions to the observation of single proton transport at solid/water interfaces.
    Jean Comtet École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Département Sciences et Techniques de l'Ingénieur, CH-1015 Lausanne New paradigms are expected to emerge at the nanometer scale for soft matter and mechanics, stemming from the breakdown of continuum concepts and the appearance of new force scales. I will (...)
  • Séminaire PMMH — Miguel Fernandez (équipe-projet Commedia, INRIA Paris)
    Vendredi 22 novembre 11:00-12:00 - Salle réunion PMMH 1
    Numerical methods for fluid-structure interaction with immersed elastic bodies
  • Séminaire PMMH - Jean-Philippe Bouchaud
    Vendredi 20 décembre 11:00-12:00 - Salle réunion PMMH 1
    Physique et modélisation de l'économie
Information for the speakers

The audience is composed of people with rather heterogeneous backgrounds including specialists in solids, fluids, granular flows, statistical physics... so the idea is to keep your talk understandable by people not necessarily working in your field... The seminar time slot runs from 11am to noon so the best is to make the talk last around 45 minutes to leave some time for discussion.
