Computations and Analysis of Interfaces in Materials - Part I of II

10:00 AM-12:00 PM
Room: Declaration

For Part II, see MS12.

Computations and analysis of interfaces and understanding interfacial phenomenon is very important to many problems in material sciences. In this minisymposium, the speakers will focus on the mathematical modeling and analysis as well as numerical computations of problems involving interfaces in materials. They will discuss micro-structure evolution, thin films, surface diffusions and deformation of elastic sheets. The mathematical and computational models discussed in the minisymposium involve studies of simplified mathematical equations, and sharp interface approach and diffusive interface approaches applied to specific physical problems.
