Glassy Dynamics in Active Matter
There has been much interest in the glassy dynamics of living systems at the scales of subcellular structures, cells and tissues. This has motivated theoretical studies on the approach to glassy behaviour in dense systems ...
Dynamics of Glass-Forming Liquids and Shear-Induced Grain Growth in Dense Colloidal Suspensions
The work presented in this doctoral thesis employs colloidal suspensions to explore key open problems in condensed matter physics. Colloidal suspensions, along with gels, polymers, emulsions and liquid crystals belong to ...
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 ...
