Jay Fineberg’s Group

Jay Fineberg’s Laboratory

Jay Fineberg’s laboratory has a variety of different research interests.  Each of these projects is interesting  (to us)  in itself ,  fundamentally important,  an intrinsically nonlinear process, and basically fun to study.  Some of these, in broad strokes, are:

· The physics of  “How Things Break”   —  The study of dynamic (rapid) fracture in brittle materials

· The pattern formation and interactions of nonlinear waves

· The physics of  “How Things Slide”  — The study of the onset of frictional motion and laboratory modeling of earthquakes
