Math-Materials: International & Interdisciplinary Workshop Visualization & Ideal Embeddings of Entangled Structures

images

Information

This second international workshop aims to highlight the interdisciplinary connections between mathematics and materials science through the study of ideal embeddings and visualization of entangled structures in our physical space.

A better understanding of the structure and functions of these complex frameworks, as well as the links between them, is indeed targeted through the advances and challenges that will be shared during the various talks of this workshop.
