14:15-14:45 Efim Brener Onsager’s symmetry and the kinetics of phase transitions
Interface kinetics often plays an important role in phase transformations.
14:45-15:00 Itamar Shani [1] Fluctuations in a long-range interacting microfluidic droplet ensemble
Many-body systems with long-range interactions that exhibit complicated collective dynamics are common in Nature.
15:00-15:15 Arik Yochelis New Views of Excitability: From Generation of Pulse Trains to Drifting Pulses
Excitability is an emergent supra-threshold response to localized stimulation of sufficiently large amplitude that res
