Quasicrystals: pattern formation and aperiodic orders
Jun 04, 2018 - Jun 08, 2018
ICMS, 15 South College Street
The central aim of this workshop is to bring together four different research communities to understanding quasicrystals (QCs) and aperiodic order: (i) QCs in materials science, (ii) QCs in soft matter, (iii) QCs in partial differential equations (PDEs) and (iv) QCs in aperiodic tilings. An improved level of engagement and understanding between researchers in these areas will bring great benefits to our understanding of QCs.
The workshop will capitalise on recent progress by giving leading and upcoming researchers a forum to discuss how different approaches can be most effectively combined to tackle and solve the big open problems in the field. Hosting this workshop will allow the UK community to take a lead role in the efforts to achieve this goal.
Further objectives of the workshop are to:
Share current state of knowledge from the communities working in different but related fields
Share open problems and discuss what approaches might be transferable to attack these
Initiate joint projects between participants
Convene a subgroup of participants to prepare a joint survey article (or a collection of articles) presenting the state of the art
Discuss and plan potential public engagement activities
Discuss and plan further workshops and meetings to build on outcome of the workshop
Discuss funding opportunities for joint research projects.
