(2018-04-17)Electrical networks have long been studied in the context of non-equilibrium thermodynamics, particularly in the linear regime, due to both their theoretical convenience and their experimental accessibility. Of more recent ...
Avalanches in plastic deformation: maximum velocity statistics, finite temperature effects, and analysis of low time resolution data (2016-06-30)In both crystalline and amorphous solids, plastic deformation consists of intermittent jumps called avalanches, whose sizes are power-law-distributed over a scaling regime. In this thesis, we study the statistics of a ...
The role of quenched disorder, interfaces and confinement on the glassy dynamics of colloidal suspensions, thermal liquids and films (2018-11-30)Understanding the slow activated glassy dynamics of colloidal and thermal (molecular, metallic, polymer) fluids in the presence of quenched disorder, interfaces and/or confinement is of fundamental science importance and ...
