International Workshop on Granular and Particulate Networks

Together with Dani Bassett and Mason Porter, we are organizing the workshop “PARNET19” at the Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems in Dresden, Germany from July 8-10 2019. Join us to help answer the following questions:

  • What are the key characteristics of the spatial and temporal patterns of force transmission in granular and other particulate materials?
  • What are the most appropriate tools from network analysis (and other areas of mathematics), either existing or to be developed, to describe the dynamics of granular materials?
  • How do we predict which parts of a granular system will fail using these tools, and how do we design and engineer materials with desired properties?
