IAS Newsletter - Feb 2015 - page 18

Tremendous progress has been made in recent years
on multiscale modeling and simulation of defects in
materials science, such as correlations among defect
structure, energetics and dynamics, and influences of
defects on the properties of the materials.
On 15-19 December 2014, the IAS Focused Program
on Multiscale Modeling and Simulation of Defect
Problems in Materials Science was held to promote
interdisciplinary research collaborations among
mathematicians and materials scientists. Led by Prof
Yang Xiang, Prof Tim Leung, and IAS Senior Fellow
Prof Xiaoping Wang from the Department of Mathematics, this 5-day program gathered over 30 distinguished scholars
and experts from different areas. Experts and research groups who have been very active in this field shared their
thoughts and experience on topics including problems of defects such as grain boundaries, materials surfaces,
dislocations, fluid-solid and biological interfaces, and techniques of mathematical analysis and numerical simulations.
