Welcome to the webpage of the Nonlinear and Nonequilibrium Dynamics group in the Department of Physics at Baylor University.
Here, you can learn about the different projects that are being pursued in complex systems to learn more about the physics of nonlinear and non-equilibrium dynamics. (Almost) all of the experiments rely on digital imaging to extract much of the quantitative information, but the projects themselves tend to be far more interdisciplinary than that might lead one to believe, crossing boundaries between physics, chemical and mechanical engineering, biology, and geology.
In general, the current research efforts involve one or more of the following topics:
- Dynamics in Granular Media
- Non-Newtonian Fluids
- Non-equilibrium Thermodynamics
- Non-equilibrium Surface Dynamics
- Insect Biomechanics
- Chaos & Encryption
- Near IR Beam Analysis
- Prosthetic Foot Development
