Minisymposium Title: Growth, Instabilities and Evolutions of Thin Films and Micro/Nanostructures

Minisymposium Description: The focus of the interdisciplinary minisymposium is on continuum and discrete models of growth, patterning and formation of thin solid films and structures, as well as on analytical and numerical methods that drive such models. The speakers will describe their recent research that highlights the combination of experiment and theory, and includes such diverse phenomena as coarsening, de-wetting, directed self-organization, and phase transitions.

Minisymposium Organizer: Mikhail V. Khenner, Western Kentucky University, USA, Stephen J. Watson, University of Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom
