Events for 28 April 2017

Richard Davison: Diffusion and chaos in holographic systems at non-zero density

1:00pm, CM221

Recent work has uncovered relations between the rate at which chaotic behaviour onsets and spreads in strongly interacting quantum systems, and the diffusivities of certain processes in these systems. Focusing mainly on holographic examples, I will explore the extent to which these relations hold in states at non-zero density, where the diffusion of charge and energy are no longer independent processes.

Djoko Wirosoetisno: Timestepping schemes for the Navier-Stokes equations

2:00pm, CM105

We discuss several temporal discretisation schemes and their applications to the Navier-Stokes equations. Of particular interest is the convergence of long-time statistics in the 2d case. We will also comment briefly on the situation in 3d.
