Workshop on Mathematical Models For Pattern Formation


Center for Nonlinear Analysis
Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA
March 8-10, 2019


Challenges from the physical sciences and engineering are driving the development of new techniques in the calculus of variations, nonlinear partial differential equations, and scientific computing. Conversely, techniques from these areas are having a fundamental impact on our understanding of these problems. Pattern formation is an important emerging theme in a number of scientific and engineering contexts. Within this general area, topics addressed in this workshop will include crystallization, copolymers, materials defects, the onset of microstructure, and wrinkling.


Speakers include:


  • Basile Audoly, CNRS and Ecole Polytechnique, France

  • Peter Bella, Leipzig University, Germany

  • Irene Beyerlein, University of California, Santa Barbara, USA

  • Rustum Choksi, McGill University, Canada

  • Qiang Du, Columbia University, USA

  • Kenneth M. Golden, University of Utah

  • Richard James, University of Minnesota, USA

  • Francisco López Jiménez, University of Colorado Boulder, USA

  • Robert Kohn, New York University, USA

  • Konstantinos Koumatos, University of Sussex, UK

  • Maria Giovanna Mora, University of Pavia, Italy

  • Massimiliano Morini, University of Parma, Italy

  • Cyrill Muratov, New Jersey Institute of Technology, USA

  • Paul Plucinsky, University of Minnesota, USA

  • Angkana Rüland, Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences, Germany

  • Lev Truskinovsky, Ecole Polytechnique, France

  • Franziska Weber, Carnegie Mellon University, USA

  • Barbara Zwicknagl, Technical University of Berlin, Germany

Advanced graduate students, postdocs, and junior faculty are invited to submit a title and an abstract for a poster. A CV will also be required. Each poster will be individually introduced with a five-minute oral presentation.
The deadline for online submission of posters is February 15, 2019.

Advanced undergraduate students, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows are encouraged to apply for financial support.
The deadline for online applications is January 15, 2019.
