"Ars longa, vita brevis, occasio praeceps, experimentum periculosum, iudicium difficile" ( Hippocrates)

Well, I should start my home page with some introduction. I am a researcher, that simply means that I learn and study new things trying to invent something new and helpfull. Someone thinks research is a hope or a hobby, for someone else it simply is a business. For me research is at least all the three things together. This web page tells about my work as a researcher. Probably, later I will add some info about my hobbies including photography.

 

RESEARCH INTERESTS:

- Computational Fluid dynamics.

- Applied mathematics and numerical methods. Numerical solution of partial differential equations.

- Numerical modeling of complex dynamical systems.

- Programming and computer graphics.

- Bifurcations, chaos, hydrodynamics.

- Modeling of satellite's motion, vibrations.

 

PROJECTS:

- Thermocapillary convection (liquid bridge, floating zone)

      - See animation of m=0+1 wave for Re=1200, Gamma=1.8 and Biot=0

      - See animation of m=0+1 wave for Re=1155, Gamma=1.8 and Biot=0

      - See experimental movie on formation of PAS in liquid bridge

      - See animation of formation of PAS in liquid bridge (modelling of the experiment)

 

- Thermo-vibrational convection

- Thermodiffusion see a page about it

- Spectral analysis of data
