Statistical physics

Statistical physics uses methods of probability theory and statistics, and particularly the mathematical tools for dealing with large populations and approximations, in solving physical problems. It can describe a wide variety of fields with an inherently stochastic nature.

Bottlenecks for particle growth in turbulent aerosols

The project studies how water droplets in clouds grow. The process is significant in many areas, such as the development of climate models. Read more (external web page, opens in a new window)

Caustics in turbulent aerosols

Networks of caustics can occur in the distribution of particles suspended in a randomly moving gas. Read more

Clustering by mixing flows

We study the dynamics of small particles suspended in a turbulent flow (e.g. sand storms, water droplets in clouds). Read more

Gene-history correlations

Correlation of gene histories in the human genome determines the patterns of genetic variation (haplotype structure) and is crucial to understanding genetic factors in common diseases. Read more

Staggered ladder spectra

We exactly solve a Fokker-Planck equation by determining its eigenvalues and eigenfunctions. Read more
