ICTP Public Lecture
Professor Leo P. Kadanoff is a theoretical physicist and applied mathematician who has contributed widely to research in the properties of matter, the development of urban areas, statistical models of physical systems, and the development of chaos in simple mechanical and fluid systems.
His best-known contribution was in the development of the concepts of "scale invariance" and "universality" as they are applied to phase transitions.
More recently, he has been involved in the understanding of singularities in fluid flow.
