The role of energy is fundamental in driving dynamics and structure in a spectrum of models from materials science, fluid mechanics, and mathematical biology. This workshop will address a variety of aspects of complex energy-driven systems, ranging from fundamental questions of mathematical analysis to modeling and computer simulation. Researchers using a variety of tools (analysis of PDE, calculus of variations, stochastic analysis, numerical simulation) will have an opportunity to interact and exchange ideas. Furthermore, the workshop will present an opportunity for young researchers to learn about the exciting advances in this rapidly developing field.
