Catching the Next Wave

This movie is a simulation showing movement of a fluid inside a rectangular cavity. The fluid is heated from above and cooled from below, resulting in a stable temperature stratification. When the cavity is oscillated up-and-down, the fluid experiences an instability which develops into a full-fledged wave-breaking event. The movie illustrates this event over ten oscillation periods, using the temperature to visualize the flow. The simulation was conducted over one month on the ASU Agave supercomputer. Brought to you by postdoctoral scholar Jason Yalim and associate professors Juan Lopez and Bruno Welfert.

Exploring non transparent objects with mathematics: Images and data analysis

Images give us a rich description about the reality around us. The first x-ray film was taken in 1895, and the first applications of x-rays were in industry and then in medical imaging. Nowadays, images are present in many medical applications. My research is driven by the quest for better models and tools for image and data understanding. At different levels of abstraction, I would like to contribute to a diverse spectrum of mathematical challenges related to image and data with useful applications in the development of science, technology, and society.

Emerging Minds Lab

Take a tour of our lab space! In our lab, we investigate how infants and young children learn about the world around them. We look at: (1) how children's early curiosity supports their thinking and reasoning; (2) what role the social and cultural environment plays in shaping early learning; and (3) how children's extraordinary capacity for learning differs from other closely related species. To conduct this work, we use a variety of methodological approaches (e.g. behavioral experiments, naturalistic observations, looking-based paradigms) across a range of species, ages, and diverse cultural groups.

Laura Tohe: Armed with Our Language, We Went to War—The Navajo Code Talkers

During WWII, a select group of young Navajo men devised a secret code using their language. The code was never broken. A cloak of secrecy hung over the Code Talkers' service until the code was declassified in 1968; the men were finally honored for their military contributions in 1982. In this presentation from November 10, 2015, Arizona State University Professor Laura Tohe, a native speaker of Navajo and daughter of a Code Talker, discussed the Code Talkers’ cultural background, how the code was devised and used, and how Navajo spiritual beliefs were used to treat post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

What is chaos? How is it different from randomness?

Science develops models that help us make sense of the patterns we see in the world. Without those models, the world appears to be random – a product of chance. But as we gain knowledge, we learn that there are patterns, and knowledge of those patterns makes the world seem less random and more deterministic. But what if there were systems that behaved randomly even if you knew everything about how the system works? These are special kinds of complex systems that are said to be chaotic. Here we explore how chaos is the apparent randomness from ordered complex systems.
