Seminar Brognian Motion
Emmanuel Villermaux


A seemingly well known, and classified problem in science is Brownian motion, a phenomenon which should in fact be called Brognian motion for reasons that I will explain. A clever exploitation of modern, high frequency measurements offer a reappraisal of the phenomenology: A yet unobserved regime, which was actually all contained in Langevin’s model, has been recently uncovered, exhibiting the Richardson-like feature familiar in turbulence, thus offering an unexpected unified picture of the small with the large.
Go back to the agenda.
