Mathematical design of new materials
Posted on 26/03/2019
Mathematics plays an important role in ensuring that we continue to make technological advances in complex materials. Mathematical modelling and understanding are key enablers for complex material development and further promotes greater potential of these materials with actual engineering applications.
The Newton Gateway to Mathematics is hosting a workshop on Mathematical Design for Solid Complex Materials at the Isaac Newton Institute, Cambridge on Wednesday 20th May 2019.
This workshop is part of the four month Research Programme at the Isaac Newton Institute (INI) on The Mathematical Design of New Materials which brings together mathematicians and scientists working in various areas of materials science and applied mathematics in order to initiate a systematic study of the optimal design of new complex materials.
A focus for the day will be to highlight with examples, the importance of state-of-the-art mathematical modelling for complex soft matter material development. This will be reflected in a programme for the day which will include talks representing academic research and end-users perspectives from a number of industries and application areas. The three sessions will cover:
- Photonics and electronics
- Biological sciences and drug design
- Novel soft matter materials
