David Crighton Fellowships: Notice

The Managers of the David Crighton Fund are pleased to announce the winners of the inaugural competition for the David Crighton Fellowships. These Fellowships have been established to enable young researchers in the late Professor Crighton's areas of interest to undertake up to three months study and research with a suitable host in Cambridge (or elsewhere, if they are already in Cambridge).

The 2003 David Crighton Fellows are:

Mr Alexei Akolzin, of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, to work with Professor R. S. Langley in the Engineering Department on 'The energy spectrum evolution of a diffuse acoustic field in an elastic body'.

Dr Elena Martín Ortega, of the Universidad de Vigo, Spain, to work with Professor M. R. E. Proctor, in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics on 'Pattern formation in Faraday waves'.

Mr Alberto Marzo, of the University of Sheffield, to work with Professor T. J. Pedley in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics on 'Flow and self-excited oscillations in collapsible tubes'.

Dr Hayder Salman, of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, to work with Professor P. H. Haynes, in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics on 'Mixing in time-dependent flows'.

The David Crighton Fellowship Meeting

The four persons elected to the inaugural David Crighton Fellowships in 2003 have been invited to present their work at a Meeting on the afternoon of Tuesday, 21 October 2003, in Meeting Room 5 (the Manns Room) of the Centre for Mathematical Sciences (CMS), Wilberforce Road, Cambridge, CB3 0WA. The programme for the meeting is as follows:

3.00 p.m. Introduction, by: Professor T. J. Pedley, Head of the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics.
3.05 p.m. Lagrangian transport and mixing enhancement in a bluff-body flow by Dr H. Salman, of MIT.
3.35 p.m. Numerical simulation of three-dimensional flows through a collapsible tube by Mr A. Marzo, of the University of Sheffield.
4.05 p.m. Tea in the Centre Core of CMS
4.30 p.m. Mean flow effects in the Faraday instability by Dr E. Martín Ortega, of the University of Vigo.
5.00 p.m. Weak nonlinear effects in diffuse elastodynamic fields by Dr A. Akolzin, of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

All are welcome to attend.

Following the meeting there will be a reception in the Common Room of Pavilion G, in the Corfield Institute for Applied Mathematics, CMS.
