SIAM thanks the National Science Foundation for its support in conducting this conference.
Conference Scope and Themes
The conference will gather the interdisciplinary community of scientists working on mathematical and computational aspects of materials science. One goal is to examine recent methodological advances in areas such as:
- Analysis of moving surfaces
- Fast boundary integral methods
- Macroscopic consequences of microstructure
- Pattern formation due to energy minimization
A second goal is to highlight recent accomplishments in areas such as:
- Materials design, synthesis and processing
- Simulation of phase transformation dynamics
- Stress effects in thin films
A third goal is to identify promising directions for new developments of a mathematical or computational nature, in areas such as:
- Atomic-scale modeling
- Liquid crystals and polymers
- Magnetic materials
Materials science is an interdisciplinary subject. The conference will include scientists from a broad range of backgrounds, including mechanics, physics, engineering, mathematics and computational science.
Sunday, May 11, 1997
