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.
