Research Interests
Nonequilibrium statistical mechanics and dynamical systems, New ideas and techniques from the modern theories of chaotic dynamical systems suggest that a new fundamental conceptual basis for a theory of nonequilibrium steady states is possible. We have proved to conjugate pairing rule for a class of thermostatted nonequilibrium steady states. This together with the GallavottiCohen fluctuation theorem are the two new results of the 90's.
Statistical hydrodynamics, I am interested in the interface between statistical mechanics and hydrodynamics, particularly for convective flows.
