Thematic Einstein Semester: “Geometric and topological structure of materials”


Dear Scientists and Mathematicians,

We wish to announce the opening event (April 13 + 14, 2021) of the


  Thematic Einstein Semester

      “Geometric and Topological Structure of Materials”

  TU Berlin, Summer 2021


This fourth Berlin Thematic Einstein Semester (postponed from 2020) is
devoted to recent developments in the field of computational materials
science. It aims to bring together experts from the sciences with experts
from computational topology, computational algebraic, discrete
differential and stochastic geometry working on the structure
and function of materials.

The semester is organized within the framework of the Berlin Mathematics
Research Center MATH+ and is supported by the Einstein Foundation Berlin.
