non equilibrium dynamics interacting particles

The Department of Physics is going to host the sixth instalment of the Eminent Guest Lecture Series: An Odyssey of Physics on March 19, 2022, at 03.00 PM IST with Prof Parongama Sen from the University of Calcutta as the keynote speaker. Dr Sen will be speaking on” Non-equilibrium dynamics of interacting particle systems with annihilation”.

Prof Parongama Sen has been teaching at the University of Calcutta as Professor since 2008. She received her PhD from Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics, Calcutta in 1993. She was also awarded APS-IUSSTF Professorship in 2012-13. Her research interests include statistical physics: phase transitions and critical phenomena in magnetic systems, networks, quantum systems, percolation etc. and dynamical phenomena in complex physical and social systems.

Non-equilibrium dynamics of interacting particle systems with annihilation

There has been tremendous research activity on the evolution of systems comprising of interacting particles in Statistical Physics over the last few decades. This lecture particularly considers those systems in which the particles (also called reactants) may get annihilated instantaneously upon contact or merged as a single species, both of which reduce the particle number. Some of these processes have a one-to-one correspondence with the coarsening dynamics of spin systems and play an important role in the development of non-equilibrium Statistical Physics.

Usually, one considers diffusive motion when the particles move freely, and some known results in this context will be discussed. Here, the speaker notes that the dynamics may also be considered in terms of population densities rather than individuals and examples include models of epidemic spreading.

Finally, she will focus on a model in which the reactant particles are driven by a dynamic bias that radically changes the scaling behaviour of the relevant quantities. The results will be presented for such a system, highlighting the microscopic dynamics, which reveal a crossover behaviour.

Workshop on Applied Rheology

Department of Civil Engineering has organised a workshop on Applied Rheology on March 11, 2022, at 10:30 AM (IST). Dr Kartik Pondicherry, Dr Sumit Singh and Dr Kapil Joshi, Application Specialists at Anton Paar, India, will be delivering the keynote addresses.

About this workshop:

Rheology deals with the deformation and flow behaviour of materials. Rheology, in terms of viscosity and viscoelastic behaviour, plays a significant role in many aspects of production, processing, transportation, and consumption of materials and products. The current workshop deals with the basics of rheology with a particular focus on the real-life application of rheology in asphalt, polymers and the food industry.

Speakers:

Dr Kartik Pondicherry pursued his Doctorate in Tribology from the University of Leoben in Leoben, Austria. He started his professional journey at Anton Paar in Graz, Austria. With over a decade of experience in the field of tribology, Dr Pondicherry moved back to India to manage the tribology portfolio in the country. He joined Anton Paar India as a Technical Manager for Rheology. Over the past few years, Dr Pondicherry has conducted numerous seminars and training for people from both academia and industry in different parts of the globe.

Dr Sumit Singh completed his PhD on “Thermal and Rheological study on Polymer modified Bitumen” from IIT Roorkee. After his doctoral studies, he joined the Characterization Division at Anton Paar, India as an Application Specialist. His interest in Rheology lies in its wide range of applications and modularity. Dr Singh is experienced in organising training sessions and webinars. He also conducts lab sessions on various applications of rheology such as polymers, asphalt, DMTA, gels etc. His scientific papers have been presented in numerous National & International forums. He has further received a few academic accolades in his research career.

Dr Kapil Joshi is presently working as an Application Specialist for Rheology & Particle Characterisation in Anton Paar, India. He pursued his doctoral studies in Materials Science in the area of semiconductors & ion beams from the University of Mumbai. After that, he carried out post-doctoral work at the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR, Mumbai). His area of research was organic LEDs & solar cells. During his previous engagements, he worked on techniques such as electron microscopy, atomic force microscopy & nanoindentation. In Anton Paar India, he is responsible for analysing samples, delivering talks & conducting training sessions on various aspects of rheology & particle characterisation in the area of polymers, pharma formulations, powders etc.

celebrating women's day 2022

SRM University-AP is all full of life to welcome yet another International Women’s Day on March 08, 2022. Women’s day is celebrated across the globe to honour womanhood and the incredible contributions they have made in the social, cultural, political, and economic domains. We are delighted to celebrate this women’s day with Smt KGV Saritha, Superintendent of Police, Women Protection Cell, CID-AP. The event is scheduled to be held on March 08, 2022, from 10.00 am onwards. Honourable Vice-Chancellor, Prof. VS Rao will preside over the function. Various cultural programmes are organised as part of the celebrations. Uttam Pratibha Mahila awards will be distributed, the women faculty members and leadership team will be felicitated. We take this opportunity to inculcate indomitable spirit and strong belief in oneself in the minds of every woman.

It is imperative to acknowledge the success story of every woman in a world where gender inequality and female discrimination continue to rule over. The theme chosen for women’s day 2022 is ‘Gender Equality Today for a Sustainable Tomorrow’. It holds significance against the backdrop of rapid climate change and environmental disasters the twenty-first century has been a witness to. This women’s observance is in recognition and celebration of the women and girls who are leading the charge on climate change adaptation and response, and to honour their leadership and contribution towards a sustainable future.
