meeting Einstein in London ;-)
Research interest: Nonequilibrium statistical thermodynamics of dissipative many-body
(e.g., granular matter, earthquakes, dislocations, etc…).
Current problems:1. Physical models for statistical laws in seismology: Gutenberg-Richter law, Omori law, recurrence time distribution, etc.
Past problems:- Heat conduction in one-dimensional lattices
Simulation movies part II: Dislocations in solidsthe Hirsch mechanism (10Mb)
shock-induced dislocation nucleation on the void surface
interation between edge dislocation and void in fcc copper
dislocation nucleation at the crack tip during tensile fracture
spall fracture of shocked fcc crystal
