Vijay P. Singh, the 2016 Texas A&M Chapter of Sigma Xi Outstanding Distinguished Scientist, will present “Connecting the Dots: A Unifying Theory for Modeling in Water Engineering.”
Dr. Singh will discuss the entropy theory and illustrate its application to a wide spectrum of questions in water engineering that have been dealt with using seemingly disparate techniques. He will also show that the theory has potential in engineering as well as non-engineering areas.
Dr. Singh is a University Distinguished Professor and holder of the Caroline and William N. Lehrer Distinguished Chair in Water Engineering in the Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering, College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. He holds a joint appointment with the Zachry Department of Civil Engineering, College of Engineering.
