Daniel Harris, Applied Mathematics Colloquium

January 26 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Speaker: Daniel Harris, Brown University Title: Follow the bouncing ball Abstract: Fluid droplets may bounce indefinitely on vibrating fluid bath, exhibiting complex vertical dynamics that depend sensitively on the experimental parameters. At each impact with the underlying bath, the droplet deforms the free surface, generating waves at the interface. In certain parameter regimes, the droplets can interact with such waves and progress horizontally across the surface. This hydrodynamic system represents a macroscopic wave-particle duality, and has been shown to exhibit behaviors reminiscent…
