Exact coherent structures and dynamics of turbulent flows

December 12 (Mon)    9:20-10:20 in JST (UTC+9:00)

in PST (UTC-8:00): December 11 (Sun) 16:20-17:20
in CET (UTC+1:00): December 12 (Mon) 1:20-2:20

Abstract: In the world of moderate, everyday turbulence of fluids flowing across planes and down pipes, a quiet revolution is taking place. Applied mathematicians can today compute `exact coherent structures' numerically precise 3D, fully nonlinear Navier-Stokes solutions: unstable equilibria, traveling waves, and (relative) periodic orbits. Experiments carried out at Georgia Tech today yield measurements as detailed as the numerical simulations; our experimentalists measure such `exact coherent structures' and trace out their unstable manifolds. What emerges is a picture of low-Reynolds turbulence as a walk among sets of weakly unstable invariant solutions.
We take you on a tour of this newly breached, hitherto inaccessible territory. Mastery of fluid mechanics is no prerequisite, and perhaps a hindrance: the talk is aimed at anyone who had ever wondered why - if no cloud is ever seen twice - we know a cloud when we see one? And how do we turn that into mathematics?

Spin Hall nano-oscillator based Ising machines for combinatorial optimization

December 13 (Tue)    17:00-18:00 in JST (UTC+9:00)

in PST (UTC-8:00): December 13 (Tue) 0:00-1:00   
in CET (UTC+1:00):December 13 (Tue) 9:00-10:00   

Abstract: In my talk I will first briefly review the fundamentals of Ising Machines and describe different types of quantum and classical implementations. These range from D-waves Quantum Annealer, so-called Coherent Ising Machines based on Degenerate Optical Parametric Oscillators (DOPO), and most recently breadboard and PCB based LCR oscillator networks. I will then describe our recent progress in highly non-linear mutually synchronized nano-constriction based spin Hall nano-oscillator (SHNO) chains and two-dimensional arrays and the possibility of using them for Ising Machines. I will describe how we can generate different types of spin wave modes and control those with voltage cates. In our most recent work, we have now added memristive functionality to these SHNOs and demonstrated non-volatile control of mutual synchronization and how this can be used for neuromorphic computing. Using microwave current injection locking and phase-sensitive micro-Brillouin Light Scattering microscopy, such two-dimensional SHNO arrays can be efficiently phase-binarized, which is a prerequisite for oscillator based Ising Machines, and solve MAX-CUT problems.

Phenomena and Boundary in Nonlinear Dynamical System

December 14 (Wed)    9:00-10:00 in JST (UTC+9:00)

in PST (UTC-8:00): December 13 (Tue) 16:00-17:00
in CET (UTC+1:00):December 14 (Wed) 1:00-2:00

Abstract: In the analysis of nonlinear dynamical systems, some assumptions are at the boundaries of the analysis domain. Some of them are to facilitate the analysis, while others are to faithfully describe the typical phenomena. However, we always come up against the problem of how to deal with the phenomena that these boundaries create. The method of analysis does not determine the boundaries. Whether experimental, numerical, or theoretical, the measurements are subject to the assumptions of the boundary setting. In this talk, I will review the setting applied to the computation and observation of phenomena in nonlinear dynamical systems as analytical techniques have progressed.
