Most of the modern societies spend a lot of resources to monitor rainfall and its variability, because rainfall is the major source of freshwater. The potential for climate change and rapid urbanization has made this even more critical. Remote sensing radars have been utilized to provide a good measure of the spatial variability of rainfall patterns, nevertheless getting accurate quantitative estimate has always been a challenge. More recently major advance has been made in the area of rainfall measurement using dual-polarization radar technology.</p> <p class="text-align-justify">This lecture will present the journey from observing raindrop shapes to regional and global measurement of rainfall to monitoring the global water cycle, with a brief introduction to the NASA Global Precipitation Mission as well as the emerging urban flood monitoring radar networks that is becoming a key part of smart city infrastructure in major metropolitan regions.</p> <p class="text-align-justify"> </p> <p class="text-align-justify"><strong>ABOUT THE SPEAKER</strong><br /> Prof V.

Machining of these materials is usually associated with high<br /> machining costs and low productivity. This is due to the excessive generation of heat at the<br /> cutting zone and difficulties in heat dissipation due to relatively low heat conductivity of these<br /> materials. Nowadays, metal cutting industries are looking towards new sustainable machining<br /> methods to reach the target set by the environmentally conscious regulations in terms of usage<br /> and disposal of chemical contaminant conventional coolants without sacrificing the productivity.<br /> Few of such sustainable machining methods are using minimum quality lubrication and<br /> cryogenic cooling while machining. The portability of the setup for these techniques for<br /> commercial use will be discussed. Experimental results and observations while machining<br /> 17-4 PH SS while machining under cryogenic (liquid nitrogen), Minimum quality lubrication,<br /> wet and dry environments will be discussed. Methods for effective usage of liquid nitrogen<br /> while machining by modifying tool holder will be discussed.</p> </div> <div class="field_event_category" id="field_event_category"> <div class="field-label">Event Category</div> <div class="field-content"><a href="/taxonomy/term/77" hreflang="en">Seminars</a></div> </div> Fri, 23 Nov 2018 07:21:17 +0000 earunrahul 1111 at https://iitpkd.ac.in Cosmic Dawn: When the first stars and galaxies were born https://iitpkd.ac.in/events/cosmic-dawn-when-first-stars-and-galaxies-were-born <span class="title">Cosmic Dawn: When the first stars and galaxies were born</span> <div class="field_speaker" id="field_speaker"> <div class="field-label">Speaker</div> <div class="field-content">Prof. Ravi Subrahmanyan, Director, Raman Research Institute, Bangalore</div> </div> <span class="uid"><a title="View user profile." href="/people/djagadeesan" lang="" about="/people/djagadeesan" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">d.jagadeesan</a></span> <span class="created">Wed, 11/21/2018 - 04:55</span> <div class="field_event_venue" id="field_event_venue"> <div class="field-label">Venue</div> <div class="field-content"><a href="/taxonomy/term/10" hreflang="en">Auditorium</a></div> </div> <div class="field_organizer" id="field_organizer"> <div class="field-label">Organizer</div> <div class="field-content "><a href="/user/ "></a></div> </div> <div class="field_event_date" id="field_event_date"> <div class="field-label">From</div> <div class="field-content">Wed, 6th Feb, 2019 4:00 pm<span class="addtocalendar atc-style-blue" data-secure="auto"><a class="atcb-link">Add to Calendar</a> <var class="atc_event"><var class="atc_date_start">2019-02-06 16:00:19</var> <var class="atc_date_end">2019-02-06 16:00:19</var> <var class="atc_title">Title</var> <var class="atc_description">Description</var> <var class="atc_location">Location</var> <var class="atc_organizer">IIT Palakkad</var> <var class="atc_organizer_email">mssarath@gmail.com</var> <var class="atc_timezone">UTC</var> <var class="atc_privacy">public</var> </var></span> </div> </div> <div class="field_to" id="field_to"> <div class="field-label">To</div> <div class="field-content">Wed, 6th Feb, 2019 5:30 pm</div> </div> <div class="field_event_image"> <img src="/sites/default/files/2019-01/institute-colloquium-cosmic_dawn.jpg" width="842" height="1191" alt="Institute Colloquium Cosmic Dawn" typeof="foaf:Image" /> </div> <div class="field_event_category" id="field_event_category"> <div class="field-label">Event Category</div> <div class="field-content"><a href="/taxonomy/term/141" hreflang="en">Colloquium</a></div> </div> <div class="field_event_file" id="field_event_file"> <div class="field-label">Event file</div> <div class="field-content"><span class="file file--mime-image-jpeg file--image"><a href="https://iitpkd.ac.in/sites/default/files/2019-01/Institute-Colloquium-Cosmic%20Dawn.jpg" type="image/jpeg;

Although highly-luminescent quantum dots based on cadmium and lead chalcogenides have been developed, stochastic fluctuation of photoluminescence intensity, also called blinking, continues to be a major challenge in the applications of these tiny crystals to single molecule imaging and single photon devices. Blinking photoluminescence has been extensively investigated since its first observation in 1996.1 In a highly-excited quantum dot, blinking originates from photo-charging, ultrafast non-radiative Auger recombination, and delayed charge neutralization.2,3 So far, blinking suppression is accomplished by defect passivation,4 electron transfer,5,6 and shell preparation.7 Among these methods, electron transfer is attractive for post-synthesis, real-time blinking suppression. Investigations of electron transfer from molecular donors to quantum dots and from quantum dots to molecular and nanoparticle acceptors reveal uncorrelated thermodynamic and kinetic properties associated with blinking.8 By referring to hot charge carriers, the rate of non-radiative Auger recombination, and free energy change of electron transfer, this presentation highlights single-molecule detection and real-time suppression of photoluminescence blinking in CdSe-based quantum dots.   </b></p> <p> </p> <p dir="ltr"><b id="docs-internal-guid-d2ebf5fa-7fff-743b-b6e8-638fbd67f24a">References</b></p> <ol><li dir="ltr"> <p dir="ltr"><b id="docs-internal-guid-d2ebf5fa-7fff-743b-b6e8-638fbd67f24a">M.

Relative alpha-entropy  is the Renyi analogue of relative entropy (Kullback-Leibler divergence). In this talk I will discuss four problems, namely Campbell’s source coding problem, Massey-Arikan’s guessing problem, Huieihel et al.’s memoryless guessing problem, and Bunte-Lapidoth’s encoding of tasks problem. In all these problems the objective function to optimize is moments of some functions of random variables and Renyi entropy and relative alpha-entropy arise as optimal solutions. I will also talk about a close relationship among these problems and our on-going work on unifying these problems.</p> </div> <div class="field_event_category" id="field_event_category"> <div class="field-label">Event Category</div> <div class="field-content"><a href="/taxonomy/term/77" hreflang="en">Seminars</a></div> </div> Thu, 08 Nov 2018 03:38:02 +0000 earunrahul 1095 at https://iitpkd.ac.in Caste is not dead yet! : A Documentary Screening and Discussion on the 'Idea of Caste' in India https://iitpkd.ac.in/events/caste-not-dead-yet-documentary-screening-and-discussion-idea-caste-india <span class="title">Caste is not dead yet! : A Documentary Screening and Discussion on the &#039;Idea of Caste&#039;

Director Stalin spent four years traveling the length and breadth of the country to expose the continued oppression of Dalits, ‘the broken people’, who suffer under a 4,000-year-old religious system. It exposes the continuation of caste practices and untouchability in Sikhism, Christianity and Islam, and even amongst the Communists in Kerala. Dalits themselves are not let off the hook. Spanning eight states and four religions, ‘India Untouched’ will make it impossible for anyone to deny that untouchability continues to be practiced in India. In an age where the media projects only one image of “rising” or “poised” India, this film reminds us how far the country is from being an equal society. Traveling through eight states and four religions, this film is a serious exploration of caste oppression.</font></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></p> </div> <div class="field_event_category" id="field_event_category"> <div class="field-label">Event Category</div> <div class="field-content"><a href="/taxonomy/term/78" hreflang="en">Lectures</a></div> </div> Mon, 29 Oct 2018 00:46:33 +0000 d.jagadeesan 1090 at https://iitpkd.ac.in Friendly Fundas https://iitpkd.ac.in/events/friendly-fundas <span class="title">Friendly Fundas</span> <div class="field_speaker" id="field_speaker"> <div class="field-label">Speaker</div> <div class="field-content">Srinivas Narayanan, Director Engg, Applied AI and Machine Learning, Facebook</div> </div> <span class="uid"><a title="View user profile." href="/people/biju" lang="" about="/people/biju" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">biju</a></span> <span class="created">Thu, 10/25/2018 - 09:54</span> <div class="field_event_venue" id="field_event_venue"> <div class="field-label">Venue</div> <div class="field-content"><a href="/taxonomy/term/10" hreflang="en">Auditorium</a></div> </div> <div class="field_organizer" id="field_organizer"> <div class="field-label">Organizer</div> <div class="field-content "><a href="/user/ "></a></div> </div> <div class="field_event_date" id="field_event_date"> <div class="field-label">From</div> <div class="field-content">Thu, 25th Oct, 2018 8:00 pm<span class="addtocalendar atc-style-blue" data-secure="auto"><a class="atcb-link">Add to Calendar</a> <var class="atc_event"><var class="atc_date_start">2018-10-25 20:00:00</var> <var class="atc_date_end">2018-10-25 20:00:00</var> <var class="atc_title">Title</var> <var class="atc_description">Description</var> <var class="atc_location">Location</var> <var class="atc_organizer">IIT Palakkad</var> <var class="atc_organizer_email">mssarath@gmail.com</var> <var class="atc_timezone">UTC</var> <var class="atc_privacy">public</var> </var></span> </div> </div> <div class="field_to" id="field_to"> <div class="field-label">To</div> <div class="field-content">Thu, 25th Oct, 2018 9:00 pm</div> </div> <div class="body"><p><strong>About the Speaker:</strong></p> <p>Srinivas Narayanan leads the Applied Machine Learning group at Facebook which pushes the state of the art in AI technologies to advance Facebook products.
