Herbivores like a little salt with their protein

One of the questions that drives a lot of our work is “Of the 25 elements required to build organisms, how many of them help regulate the abundance, activity, and diversity of organisms in ecosystems?”. 762 more words

On the Zakharov's weak turbulence theory for capillary waves

In this paper with M.-B. Tran, we construct solutions to the following weak turbulence kinetic equation for capillary waves (cf. Hasselmann ’62, Zakharov ’67): 148 more words

Prandtl's layer expansions for steady Navier-Stokes

In 1904, Prandtl conjectured that slightly viscous flows can be decomposed into the inviscid flows away from the boundary and a so-called Prandtl’s layer near the boundary. 623 more words

Inviscid limit for Navier-Stokes in a rough domain

In this paper with GĂ©rard-Varet, Lacave, and Rousset, we prove the inviscid limit of Navier-Stokes flows in domains with a rough or oscillating boundary. Precisely, we study the 2D incompressible Navier-Stokes flows with small viscosity , posed on the following rough domain: 541 more words

Huy, Kazik and Steve publish paper on how crabs engineer creek growth

The first paper from Huy’s dissertation is now published in Ecology. Huy compared four species of burrowing crabs and shows how one of them, Sesarma reticulatum, engineers the growth of headward-eroding creeks in tidal marshes in Georgia and South Carolina. 114 more words
