  • Fernando Peruani (Universite de Nice Sophia Antipolis)
    Lundi 29 octobre 2012 11:15-12:15 - Bibliothèque PCT - F3.04
    From bacteria to collective motion in heterogeneous media
    First part - I will show some recent experimental results with three mutants of the gliding bacterium Myxococcus xanthus. We found that mutants lacking biochemical signaling and moving unidirectionally exhibit collective motion in the form of large moving clusters at intermediate densities, while self-organize (...)

    Lundi 5 novembre 2012 11:15-12:15 - Bibliothèque PCT - F3.04
    Can Polymers Slide ? New Insights from Capillary-Driven Flows in Thin Films
    The motion of small amounts of liquid on the micro- and nanoscale is of enormous scientific interest and additionally holds great technological potential, e.g. in lab-on-a-chip applications for pharmaceuticals, biological analysis or chemical reactions. When downsizing devices, interfacial and confinement (...)

  • Lev Truskinovsky (Ecole Polytechnique, Palaiseau, France)
    Lundi 12 novembre 2012 11:15-12:15 - Bibliothèque PCT - F3.04
    Equilibrium and non-equilibrium statistical physics of the power stroke in skeletal muscles
    The classical Huxley-Simmons model of muscle contractions exhibits unusual statistical properties due to the presence of long range elastic interactions. Those include non-equivalence of the soft and hard device ensembles, negative equilibrium stiffness and anomalously slow kinetics in the soft device. Our (...)

    Lundi 19 novembre 2012 11:15-12:15 - Bibliothèque PCT - F3.04
    Dynamics and hydrology of rapid ice sheet motion
    Two questions are discussed which arise in evaluating possible scenarios of accelerated deglaciation in Greenland and Antarctica. A first question is, how fast can a glacier imbibe a meltwater lake, and what are the aftereffects ? It focuses on Greenland where, as spring commences, a broad swath of more (...)

General recommendations for the speakers

The audience is often heterogeneous - because of the wide range of scientific topics covered in the lab - so planning a talk for a broader audience would be preferred. The seminar is in English, and speakers are thus invited to prepare their slides in English.

The seminar starts at 11:30 AM. The speaker is asked to arrive in the lab at least 15 minutes in advance to set up their computer. The talks last typically 45 minutes, and are followed by a discussion time.
