Third SIAM Conference on Mathematical Aspects of Materials Science, May 22-24, 2000, Crowne Plaza Hotel, Philadelphia, PA
Conference Scope and Themes

The conference gathers an interdisciplinary community of scientists working on mathematical and computational aspects of materials science. The sessions will provide a forum for developments on:

  • Analysis of moving interfaces
  • Macroscopic consequences of microstructure
  • Defects in materials

A second goal is to highlight recent accomplishments in:

  • Materials design, synthesis and processing
  • Simulation of phase transformation dynamics
  • Growth and morphology of thin films
  • Electromagnetic materials

A third goal is to identify promising directions for new developments of a mathematical or computational nature, in areas such as:

  • Multiscale analysis of materials: from atomic to continuum
  • Nanoscale structures
  • Liquid crystals, glasses and polymers
  • Soft materials and bio-materials

Materials science is an interdisciplinary subject. The conference welcomes scientists and mathematicians from a broad range of backgrounds, including for example, mechanics, physics, engineering, mathematical analysis, computational science and biology.
