Venue: 

Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics (ICERM), Providence, RI

Short description of the event: 

The theme of this workshop is the computation, modeling, and mathematical analysis of heterostructured nanocyrstalline materials. This includes quantum dots, nanowires, graphene, and grain boundaries. These various phenomena will be discussed in the context of modeling and computation on different scales ranging from density functional theory to continuum mechanics. The workshop will also address various techniques that allow one to combine models on different scales to yield efficient computational methods.
