From Grain Boundaries to Stochastic Homogenization: PIRE Workshop

July 20 - 23, 2015
University of Leipzig

The workshop is centered around homogenization and upscaling in materials science. Topics include the motion of grain boundaries, phase boundaries in shape memory alloys, domain walls in ferromagnets, propagating fronts in heterogeneous media. The workshop brings together experimental and theoretical physicists and engineers with mathematicians in analysis, numerical simulation and probability theory.

The workshop is supported by
