LML External Fellow Yuzuru Sato has recently reported the experimental evidence of the existence of stochastic chaos in a turbulent swirling flow. Together with co-authors (D. Faranda, B. Saint-Michel, C. Wiertel, V. Padilla, B. Dubrulle, and F. Daviaud), he shows that the experimental attractor can be modeled by a random strange attractor in stochastic Duffing equations. The article is published in Physical Review Letters: https://journals.aps.org/prl/abstract/10.1103/PhysRevLett.119.014502 Read more
LML welcomed 8 project students to the summer school for 4 weeks in July/August. The students came from Cameroon, China, Japan, Israel, Italy, and the UK. For project descriptions and presentations, see Summer School 2017. Next year’s summer school will be announced in early 2018.
Part of what makes LML special is the atmosphere of open discourse that has developed here. Communicating our work, we find, is inseparable from doing that work in the first place.
