  • Séminaire PMMH - Bruno Andreotti (LPENS)
    Vendredi 13 janvier de 11h00 à 12h00 - Salle réunion PMMH 1
    SARS-CoV-2 at the crossroads between epidemiology, biology and aerosol turbulence
    Five epidemic waves have occurred in 2022, with the second autumn wave (BQ.1.1) currently in decline. The 2023 waves will be made up of a soup of sub-variants showing an evolutionary convergence giving them an immune escape in the upper respiratory tract (XBB.1.5 will become the dominant strain in january). I will (...)
  • Séminaire PMMH - Valentin LAPLAUD (Ladhyx Polytechnique)
    Vendredi 20 janvier de 11h00 à 12h00 - Salle réunion PMMH 1
    Growth and mechanics of 'plants on a chip'
    Plant growth is a complex process depending in part on the hydraulics and mechanics of the plant cell, that has been modeled by Lockhart (1965) and Ortega (1985) using a description still used today. To study it experimentally at the cell and organism level we developed a microfluidic system to follow several (...)
  • SEMINAIRE SIMM / PMMH - Cari Dutcher (University of Minnesota)
    Mardi 14 février de 14h00 à 15h00 - Charpak
  • Séminaire PMMH - Angela Limare (IPGP)
    Vendredi 24 mars de 11h00 à 12h00 - Salle réunion PMMH 1
    The Earth's mantle in a microwave oven : thermal convection driven by a heterogeneous distribution of heat sources
    Past laboratory experiments of thermo chemical convection have dealt with systems involving fluids with different intrinsic densities and viscosities in a Rayleigh-Bénard setup. Although these experiments have greatly improved our understanding of the Earth's mantle dynamics, they neglect a fundamental component of (...)

  • Séminaire PMMH - Luis Gómez-Nava (Humboldt University of Berlin)
    Vendredi 21 avril de 11h00 à 12h00 - Salle réunion PMMH 1
    Collective and synchronized motion in animal groups : from sheep to fish
    In this talk I will present two studies of collective behavior observed in animal groups. In the first one, we studied the spontaneous and intermittent collective displacements observed in small groups of sheep (Ovis aries Linnaeus). We performed experiments and noticed that these animals form files while moving (...)
Information for the speakers

The audience is composed of people with rather heterogeneous backgrounds including specialists in solids, fluids, granular flows, statistical physics... so the idea is to keep your talk understandable by people not necessarily working in your field... The seminar time slot runs from 11am to noon so the best is to make the talk last around 45 minutes to leave some time for discussion.
