Science at the Triple Point between Mathematics, Mechanics and Materials Science
January 2011 marked the initiation of a project "Science at the Triple Point between Mathematics, Mechanics, and Materials Science," funded by NSF's PIRE program. This collaborative, multi-institutional project involves faculty from 4 US institutions and 5 European sites. Its scientific themes involve applications of nonlinear PDE, the calculus of variations, and scientific computing to problems from materials science, such as energy-driven pattern formation and the evolution of material microstructure.
