Minisymposium Title: Nonlinear Waves in Lattices

Minisymposium Description: Many problems in materials science concern phenomena where the interplay between discreteness and nonlinearity of the medium leads to the formation of nonlinear waves. Examples include emergence of localized excitations in metamaterials and defect propagation in crystal lattices. This minisymposium features presentations of recent theoretical and experimental results by leading experts in nonlinear lattice dynamics, with an emphasis on promising mathematical developments and novel applications in materials science. It aims to facilitate a fruitful exchange of ideas among mathematicians, physicists and engineers working in this field and identify future directions and open problems.
