Center for Advanced Research in Applied Mathematics & Physics CARAMP (SBSR) | Organizing Special Lecture on “S. Chandrasekhar: The Joy and Perils of doing Science” By Prof. K. R. Sreenivasan| 26th March 2019. @ Auditorium 005, Block-3
Mar 26 @ 10:45 am

Centre for Advanced Research in Applied Mathematics & Physics (CARAMP), School of Basic Sciences and Research,  Sharda University is organizing special  lecture on “S. Chandeaswkhar: The Joy and Perils of doing Science” By Prof. K. R. Sreenivasan (Ex- Director, ICTP, Italy & Senior Functionary at New York University, USA).

Prof. K.R. Sreenivasan is one of the most well-known world scientists in the area of turbulence, intermittency, convection and quantum turbulence. He has received numerous awards and prizes in recognition of his scientific work, mostly in fluid mechanics, nonlinear and statistical physics, and service to scientific community. He is presently University Professor at New York University and also Senior Vice Provost. He has held visiting positions at the Indian Institute of Science, Cal tech, Rockefeller University, and Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton University and, as the Sir C.V. Raman Professor, at the Indian Academy of Sciences.

Objective: 

To communicate the important role of S. Chandrasekhar (Nobel Laureate) in the Discovery and spectral classification of 2300 supernovae, identification of an emerging class of ultra-luminous supernovae, insights into the progenitors of type Ia supernovae, discovery of luminous red novae, the most comprehensive UV spectroscopy of Ia supernovae, discovery low energy budget supernovae, clarification of sub-classes of core collapse and thermo – nuclear explosions, mapping of the systematics of core collapse supernovae, detection of gamma-ray bursts entirely via their optical afterglow, identification of a trove of eclipsing binaries (including a planet around a newly born star) and identification of a number of the curious AM CVns.

The session is open for all students and faculty members.
