Special Guest Lecture |Pattern Formation in the Kinetics of Phase Transitions by Prof. Sanjay Puri, JNU | 2.30 PM, 21.11.2019

Consider a system which is rendered thermodynamically unstable by a sudden change of parameters, e.g., temperature, pressure, etc. The system evolves towards its new equilibrium state via the emergence and growth of domains enriched in the preferred phases. Problems in this area of "kinetics of phase transitions" have received much research attention, and arise in many areas of physics. In this talk, we review our understanding of this area.

The Physics Society is all set to start this month and close this semester with an event for the ages. We are absolutely enthused to announce that we will have the privilege to host renowned physicist and Prof. Sanjay Puri of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) for a special guest lecture at 2.30 PM on 21 November (Thursday), in C-021 (subject to change).

Title: Pattern Formation in the Kinetics of Phase Transitions

Abstract: Consider a system which is rendered thermodynamically unstable by a sudden change of parameters, e.g., temperature, pressure, etc. The system evolves towards its new equilibrium state via the emergence and growth of domains enriched in the preferred phases. Problems in this area of "kinetics of phase transitions" have received much research attention, and arise in many areas of physics. In this talk, we review our understanding of this area.

Prof. Puri has made significant contributions to the fields of statistical physics and non-linear dynamics and has been felicitated with numerous fellowships and awards including the prestigious SS Bhatnagar Prize, one of the highest Indian science awards. We encourage you to look at the attached CV and Wikipedia article to get a feel for the sheer magnitude of his qualifications and publications.

We seriously hope to see you at the event and attendance will be condoned for the attendees. Moreover, the lecture will be followed by refreshments wherein you can interact directly with Prof. Puri.

Warm Regards
