Research Interests and achievement
Updated on September 3, 2006
My recent interest is focused mainly on classical systems and their statistical properties. For instance, (1) the statistical and dynamical behavior of a vibrating key chain on a speaker. How is it similar to and different from a polymer in isolation, confinement, melt, or solution? Particularly, we find the entropic force observed in this system can be extended to stiff rods and even books on a shelf in the event of an earthquake. Now we have arranged for students to sneak in the physics library regularly late at night to simulate the various shakings due to earthquakes on the shelves. (2) Classic Hele-Shaw experiment is studied in the case of point or circular injection. Different from the parallel injection abundant in the literature, we argue (and duly observed) they are of different universality class. A new approach, as opposed to the famous KPZ model, is required.
