aula DOTTORATO - 24 maggio ore 11.00
  Amitabha Ghosh, Department of Mechanical Engineering - Indian Institue of Technology Kanpur, India

>PRESENTATION:Amitabha Ghosh (born December 3, 1941) earned a Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical) degree in 1962, a Master of Engineering (Mechanical) in 1964 and a Doctor of Philosophy (Engineering) in 1969, all from Calcutta University. In his Bachelor's and Master's years, he was the recipient of the University Gold Medal for highest standing in all branches of engineering. He was a lecturer in Mechanical Engineering at Bengal Engineering College, Shibpur, from 1965 to 1970, and then served as Assistant Professor and finally Professor in the Mechanical Engineering Department at Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur from 1971 to 1997, when he was appointed Director of IIT Kharagpur, the oldest and largest of the IIT campuses. He has been a Senior Fellow of the Alexander Alexander von Humboldt Foundation in Germany since 1977, and is a Fellow of the Institution of Engineers, Indian National Academy of Engineering, Indian Academy of Science and the Indian National Science Academy. Professor Ghosh's professional interest lies in the fields of Manufacturing Science and Engineering Mechanics. He discovered a number of interesting phenomena, one of the more important being the effect of magnetic fields on wear. He was among the first to observe chaos in mechanical systems, and conducted one of the first experiments on chaos in mechanical systems in 1979. He pioneered teaching and research in the field of Robotics in India in 1984, and in 1989 helped found the Centre for Robotics at IIT Kanpur, where he inaugurated the first specialized postgraduate course in Robotics. He has published over 120 research papers and four books in India, the UK and the USA.

  Part I - Phenomenological Model of Inertial Induction

Part II- Astrophysical and Cosmological Consequences of Extended Mach's Principle and Modified Laws of Motion

In the first part I will present the basic idea and the primary derivation of the modified laws of motion based upon the phenomenological model of Inertial Induction (the quantified form of Extended Mach's Principle). The consequences of the modified laws in the cosmological sense will be shown. F = ma will be derived and the equivalence of gravitational mass and inertial mass will result as a natural outcome. Cosmological redshift will be derived theoretically based upon a non expanding, non evolving stationary infinite universe satisfying Perfect Cosmological Principle.

The second part will deal with the results of various applications of the model. The unexplained excess redshifts in lights grazing heavy objects, mass discrepancy in white dwarfs, excess redshift in the solar limb, Secular changes in the rotations of the earth, phobos, Diemos and Mars will be demonstrated, Mass distribution in the spiral galaxies will be explained and the problem of transfer of solar angular momentum will be resolved. Some discussions on the true velocity dispersion in galactic clusters and recently dicovered Pioneer 11 anomaly will be presented.
