We are an interdisciplinary group working in the area of Turbulence and Nonlinear Physics. Our research interests are :
- Magnetohydrodynamic Turbulence
- High-Performance Computing
- Non-equilibrium Statistical Mechanics
Image from our article “Applicability of Taylor’s hypothesis in thermally driven turbulence, R. Soc. Open Sci., 5, 172152″ is chosen as a cover image for this month’s Royal Society Open Science edition..See Here.
Prof. Mahendra Verma, received the Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam Cray HPC award for the development of TARANG on 21st April 2018 at NIAS Bangalore. The citation reads.. “Development of open-source code TARANG and using it for turbulence simulation at extreme scales”.
Our article Statistical features of rapidly rotating decaying turbulence: Enstrophy and energy spectra and coherent structures has been selected for Editor’s Pickup in Physics of Fluids Journal (2018).
Our article Anisotropy in Quasi-Static Magnetohydrodynamic Turbulence is selected as a must-read Review by Report on Progress in Physics (ROPP) in 2017.
A news article in Nature India covers the work done in Professor Mahendra Verma’s laboratory and can be seen here: Supercomputers overturn 50-year-old conjecture of fluid physics.
