Flow Induced Instabilities, Shear-Thickening And Fluctuation Relations In Sheared Soft Matter
In day to day life we encounter many different materials which are intermediate between crystalline solids and simple liquids that include paints , glues , suspensions, polymers, surfactants, food and cosmetic products and ...
Phases, Transitions, Patterns, And Excitations In Generalized Bose-Hubbard Models
This thesis covers most of my work in the field of ultracold atoms loaded in optical lattices. This thesis can be divided into five different parts. In Chapter 1, after a brief introduction to the field of optical lattices ...
Mesophases Of Active Matter : Translational Order, Critical Rheology And Electrostatics
This thesis consists of research work in the broad area of soft condensed matter theory with a focus on active matter. The study of long wavelength, low frequency collective behavior of active particles (bacterial suspensions, ...
Confinement, Coarsening And Nonequilibrium Fluctuations In Glassy And Yielding Systems
One of the most important and interesting unsolved problems of science is the nature of glassy dynamics and the glass transition. It is quite an old problem, and starting from the early20th century there have been many ...
