Text by Rüdiger Brecht, Postdoc in M2
The M-Day started with a presentation from the subgroups M1, M2, M3, M5 and M7, where the Ph.Ds., Postdocs and PIs gave an overview of the ongoing research projects in Area M. Especially for the newcomers, this was a great opportunity to obtain an overview of the ongoing research projects.
The core part of the M-Day was that members of the M projects get to know each other. Furthermore, to have in-person meetings with all the members of one each sub project, since not all members are at the same city or institution.
The presentations were followed by two talks given by Camilla Nobili and Florian Noethen, where we learned about the Batchelor scale and Lyapunov exponents.
After all these presentations we had a Q&A session, where questions from the earlier talks and presentations could be asked. Moreover, this gave a great opportunity to discuss more general research related problems concerning all M-Projects.
Finally, we ended the retreat with a forward-looking discussion: M-projects and TRR “From theory to practice".
