Math. Analysis, Mod. and Appl. and mathLab mini-course on Fluid-Structure Interaction

Prof. Alfio Quarteroni

A mini course on Fluid-Structure Interaction will be given in the framework of AMMA and mathLab activities by Prof. Alfio Quarteroni (EPFL, Lausanne).

The mini course is organized as it follows:

Workshop on “Experimental Search for Quantum Gravity”

The aim of this workshop is to put together experimentalist, theoreticians and phenomenologists that are interested in possible tests of the quantum/discrete structure of spacetime at very short distances. 
We plan to have a number of rather focussed talks that will discuss possible phenomenological tests of quantum gravity scenarios and propose new ideas in this direction.

"Many body physics in complex fluids" - Colloquium with Alberto Parola

Complex fluids belong to the broad class of systems, known collectively as soft matter.

They are solutions, typically water-based, of macromolecular entities (often called colloidal particles) with typical sizes ranging from 1 to 1000 nm:

much larger than the atomic size but still small on a macroscopic scale. This class of systems permeates diverse fields of science, including physics, chemistry and biology, also playing a major role in the paint, food, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industry.

Stellar populations in nearby galaxies

Luciana Bianchi, from the Johns Hopkins University, will hold the next SISSA colloquium on June 24, 2014, at 12.00 am, room 128. Studies of young stellar populations in local galaxies, spanning a variety of environments and physical conditions, reveal the modalities of the star-formation process and the co-evolution of massive stars and dust. Massive stars drive the dynamical and chemical evolution of their host galaxy.

RNA & Protein - Loren Dean Williams

Nature records history, in the night sky, the rock record, the rings of trees, and especially in biological molecules. We use biological molecules to study the ancient history of life.

Il Ris di Parma alla SISSA - Due seminari sulle investigazioni scientifiche

Il Master in Comunicazione della Scienza organizza un appuntamento da non perdere per tutti quelli che vogliono sapere di piu' sulle investigazioni scientifiche. Giampietro Lago, comandante del RIS di Parma, terra' due seminari intitolati "Il reperto biologico: dalla scena del crimine al laboratorio genetico" e "Prova scientifica forense: qualità e quantità". I due seminari saranno consecutivi.

Quantum crystals - Sebastien Balibar

Sometimes one looks for something and one finds something else.
The 2004 experiments by Kim and Chan triggered an intense activity on a paradoxical question: could solid helium-4 be "supersolid", which means elastic and superfluid at the same time?
