“Hyperuniform State of Matter in Physics, Mathematics and Biology” workshop

Wed, Dec 14, 2016, 9:00 am to Fri, Dec 16, 2016, 12:45 pm

The connections of hyperuniformity to many different areas of fundamental science appear to be profound and yet our understanding of these unusual states of matter is only in its infancy. The aim of this program is to foster the interchange of ideas between different fields by bringing together a diverse group of physicists, chemists, materials scientists, mathematicians and biologists to investigate hyperuniformity and its consequences as well as to integrate ideas across fields. Besides disordered hyperuniform materials, the workshop will explore periodic and quasiperiodic materials under the lens of hyperuniformity.  The workshop runs 9 a.m. - 5:15 p.m. on Weds. Dec. 14 and Thurs. Dec. 15 and 9 a.m. - 12:45 p.m. on Fri. Dec. 16.

Program Organizers: Salvatore Torquato (PU) and Paul Steinhardt (PU)

This program is sponsored in part by PRISM (Princeton Institute for the Science and Technology of Materials) and PCCM (Princeton Center for Complex Materials) and the Department of Chemistry.
