- This is a one-day, intensive research workshop on some emerging
and challenging mathematical
and numerical problems arising from materials and biological sciences.
Faculty members, postdocs, and students, from UC San Diego, USA,
Zhejiang University, China, and other institutes, will present
informal talks describing their related researches. There will be a lot of
discussions among all the participants. Issues
such as why some of the problems are important and how to tackle them will be
addressed. It is hoped that research collaboration between different groups
will be initiated and improved. Future research and education activities
will also be planned.
Topics include but are not limited to:
- Finite-element and finite-difference methods for interface motion.
- Inverse and eigenvalue problems in materials modeling and simulation.
- Scaling laws in patter formation in materials and biological systems:
partial differential equations approach.
- Shape derivatives for material structure designs
and calculations of effective surface forces in molecular systems.
- Modeling and numerical computation of bioluminescence tomography.
- Geometrical aspects of continuum-solvent modeling of biomolecules:
efficiency vs. accuracy.
- The Poisson-Boltzmann theory of continuum electrostatics: from molecular basis
to efficient numerical methods.
- The Poisson-Nernst-Planck system for electro-diffusion with application to
biochemical binding processes.
- This workshop is partially supported by the Department of Mathematics and
Center for Mathematical Sciences (CMS), Zhejiang
University, China, by the US National Science Foundation (NSF) through the grant
DMS-0811259, and by the Center
for Theoretical Biological Physics, a US NSF
Physics Frontier Center located at UC San Diego and
funded by the NSF through the grant PHY-0822283.
