Research stay at UC3M: DEPARTMENT OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERING
Project: Professor David Newman will spend his time at Univ. Carlos III working on a variety of projects related to the broad topic of the dynamics of complex systems, in particular, turbulent systems. One of the main areas of joint research between Prof. Newman and Prof. Raúl Sánchez at Carlos III has been the study of the characteristics of turbulent transport with a focus on the often non-diffusive nature of that transport. During the time Prof.
Newman is at Carlos III he and Prof Sánchez will be writing a book for Springer Verlag on complex systems dynamics in plasmas. At the same time, further research on the nature of turbulent transport in a variety of physical systems from plasmas in stellarators and tokamaks to geophysical systems will be advanced with new techniques and computer models brought to bear on the problem.
This will have implications for the ITER fusion project as well as our fundamental understanding of turbulence. Prof. Newman will offer lectures on some of the many topics in complex systems dynamics.
Stay Period: AUG 12 - JUL 13
