Location: ENR2 S395
Presenter: Gregory Falkovich, Department of Physics of Complex Systems, Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel

How the engineering question of thermal engine efficiency spawned two hundred years of ever-accelerating progress in fundamental science, communications and computations. Thermodynamic and statistical entropy. The puzzle of the second law of thermodynamics. How irreversible entropy growth appears from reversible flows in phase space via dynamical chaos. Entropy decrease and non-equilibrium fractal measures.
