Vucelja Quoted in ScienceNews

Thursday, August 13 2020

Marija Vucelja was quoted in a ScienceNews article about a Nature paper describing experimental results consistant with the strong Mpemba effect.  [The strong Mpemba effect was predicted by Vucelja, Klich, et al., in a 2019 Physical Review X paper.]

From ScienceNews:

But the simplicity of the study is part of its beauty, says theoretical physicist Marija Vucelja of the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. “It’s one of these very simple setups, and it already is rich enough to show this effect.” That suggests the Mpemba effect could go beyond glass beads or water. “I would imagine that this effect appears quite generically in nature elsewhere, just we haven’t paid attention to it.”
