PIRE Workshop: Atomistic and Multi-Scale Models of Materials

15-18 September 2014
(Room: MS.02)

Organizers: Giovanni Leoni (CMU), Christoph Ortner (Warwick) and Florian Theil (Warwick)


Poster(PDF Document)

The topic of the workshop is the interplay between microscopic material models and the corresponding macroscopic continuum theories. The development of methods which couple multiple length and time scales is one of the key challenges of the 21st century and requires significant mathematical input. The workshop will cover recent developments in dislocation theory, phase field crystals, coarse-grained simulation methods and stochastic modelling.
