Description
A suitable 21st century paraphrasing of Kepler's famous dictum
there is computational geometry".
The workshop will bring together physicists, engineers, mathematicians and computational geometers whose work is motivated by or inspired by current geometric problems emerging in modern physics, materials science and crystallography.
Our goal is to facilitate the dissemination of a wealth of timely questions and applications, and to inspire both theoretical advances and improved algorithms for their practical solutions. Topics may include atombond networks, framework materials, displacive phase transitions, periodic minimal surfaces, noneuclidean tilings, data structures for handling symmetry and periodicity, granular materials and geometric design of materials with unusual properties (metamaterials).
