“Recent advances in homogenisation theory” workshop

Department of Mathematical Sciences

Durham University

18th – 19th June 2018

Aim of the workshop

This event is to bring together UK-based leading experts working in homogenisation theory. The workshop shall emphasis on recent advances of the field with focus on the contributions to composite material science.

The meeting aims to encourage networking between the Uk’s growing group of applied analysts working on the modern theory of homogenisation, particularly encouraging interaction between the early career researchers within in the field.

The gathering will provide an opportunity for interactions across the board between fledgling researchers within the field all the way to world-leading senior experts.
