The seminar presented by Arbi Moses-Badlyan (Technical University of Berlin) will take place on Thursday 7 December at 14:00 in room J. Bordet on the following subject:

Title: Open State Space Formulation of Reactive Mixtures

Complex physical systems have been successfully modelled as metriplectic systems, which are state space formulations that have become famous under the acronym GENERIC (General Equation for the Non-Equilibrium Reversible Irreversible Coupling). GENERIC is typically formulated for isolated systems and consist of two main parts, a Hamiltonian part represented by a Poisson bracket and an entropic part represented by a so called dissipation bracket.

In this talk I present results of a joint work were we have been able to set up an operator based open state space formulation that encodes the weak-formulation of the partial-differential field equations describing the dynamics of a reactive mixture of viscous heat-conducting Newtonian fluids. Our operator based open state space formulation via duality pairing induces a bracket formulation that has the properties of a metriplectic system such that the first and in particular the second law of thermodynamics are satisfied.
