    Vendredi 9 décembre 11:00-12:00 - A1 (Urbain)
    Forces, Stresses and the (Thermo ?)dynamics of Active Matter
    A distinguishing feature of many living systems is their ability to move - to be active. Through their motion living systems are able to self-assemble : birds flock, fish school, bacteria swarm, etc. But such behavior is not limited to living systems. Recent advances in colloid chemistry have led to the (...)
  • Séminaire PMMH - Suzie Protière (Institut d'Alembert, UPMC)
    Vendredi 16 décembre 11:00-12:00 - A1 (Urbain)
    The instabilities of a granular raft
    Small objects trapped at an interface are very common in Nature (waterstriders, ant rafts, bubbles or pollen, membranes…). They also find an application in industrial processes since they can act as stabilizing agents for emulsions or foams. Their study is therefore of practical as well as fundamental importance. (...)
  • Séminaire PMMH - Pierre-Yves Passaggia (Univ. of North Carolina)
    Vendredi 13 janvier 2017 10:30-12:30 - Bureau d'Etudes
    Convection horizontale : stabilité, bifurcation et son rôle dans la circulation méridionale des océans.
    Le rôle des différents phénomènes physiques responsables de la circulation méridionale des océans reste une question ouverte. Afin de comprendre l'impact du différentiel de température entre les pôles et l'équateur à la surface des océans sur cette circulation, un modèle d'écoulement dans une cavité, chauffée et refroidie à (...)
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.
