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?
