    Although we know that magma is generated by partial melting of rocks at depth, we have less of an understanding of the processes that transport magma from great depths (>100-150 km) into the shallower (20-0 km) crustal plumbing systems of volcanic zones.   I shall discuss how interstitial melt migrates via percolative flow, and ideas on how it eventually becomes focused and reorganized into networks.  Field and geochemical observations suggest that these networks are characterized by thermal and chemical disequilibrium between the magma and surrounding rock.  I

  • Condensed Matter Seminar: "Programming shape"

    David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A4

    Lakshminarayanan Mahadevan (Harvard University)

    I will describe a few inverse problems in physical geometry, along with some (partial) solutions. These include  using kirigami to morph planar domains, using cylinders and spherical caps to create mechanical memories, using smooth growth patterns to create flowers and faces, and using origami to fold flat sheets into curved surfaces.
