INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON PACKING PROBLEMS
Venue: School of Physics
|Event Date/Time: Sep 02, 2012||End Date/Time: Sep 05, 2012|
|Early Registration Date: Jul 13, 2012|
|Abstract Submission Date: Jun 22, 2012|
- 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).
