Description An ICTP meeting in presence (by invitation only)

This workshop is devoted to going beyond the simplest mixing situations and embrace complex situations involving the coupling between advection/diffusion in complex media or complex flows and the coupling with chemical reactions or phase changes. It will reach and expose the fellows to current research open questions and state of the art experimental, computational and theoretical techniques required to tackle complex mixing problems.

Topics:
  • Mixing & chemical reactions: chemical reactions, kinetics, catalysis, flow/reaction coupling, reaction fronts
  • Mixing & source localization: reinforcement learning algorithms
  • Mixing & geoscience: dispersion laws and stretching laws in porous media, implication for mixing
  • Mixing in complex fluids: dispersion and mixing in non-Newtonian and granular media
  • Beyond mixing: lamellar approach of spray evaporation, rain, clouds, solute precipitation
