    Greetings from MA@IITK.
     Every year MA@IITK conducts "Understanding lecture" where basic concepts
    of science and engineering are explained to IITK students. This year we
    are honoured to have with us Prof. Rajesh Prasad (Dept. Of Material science and engineering, IIT Delhi) as the speaker for this talk. The details of the
    talk are as follows:
    Title: "15 vs. 21 vs. 45: A journey into the world of anisotropic elastic
    properties"

    ABSTRACT:
    Are crystals isotropic or anisotropic? Does the answer depend upon the
    crystal system? In particular, are cubic crystals isotropic? And does the
    answer also depend upon the type of property? Can the same material be
    isotropic for one property but anisotropic for another? Is negative
    Poisson's ratio possible? If possible, is it rare or common? Why was
    Robert Hooke interested in the elasticity of springs? And how did he
    announce his law to the world? How do we extend his law to accommodate
    anisotropy? What was the disagreement between George Green and A.L. Cauchy
    on the elastic
    behaviour of crystals? Welcome to this journey in the strange world of
    anisotropic elastic properties.
