Description

Particular questions to be addressed include:

- What are the best measures to characterize complex packing morphologies?
- What is the link between dense/loose packing and mechanical stability?
- What is the role of topological rules and constraints in packing problems?
- What are the open problems in packing platonic solids?

Speakers will also consider questions of disorder and statistics, which often involve heavy computation. It will also be of interest to those working in High Performance Computing and in Visualisation, and will include an introduction to TCD's Visualization facilities.

The workshop will admit some related problems of space filling or partition (such as the Kelvin problem).

Prof. Paul Chaikin, Department of Physics, New York University, New York, USA.

Dr. Tomaso Aste, School of Physical Sciences, University of Kent, England, UK.

Prof. Emeritus John Finney, Dept of Physics & Astronomy, University College London, London, UK.
