Title: Dynamic random graph model for polymerisation in a confined environment
Networks in material science appear in a broad range of contexts and scales. Such diversity is driven, among other things, by a large number of different interactions that may occur on a permanent or ad-hoc basis within various basic building blocks of matter: atoms, molecules, colloids, granules, fibers, etc. Many physical properties of such materials are defined by the network topology rather then the nature of the building blocks, and much effort has been directed to understanding how these networks are formed and how one can manipulate the corresponding formation process by tuning the system parameters.
About the LCN2 seminar
This talk is part of a series of seminars organized within an ongoing scientific initiative called the "Leiden Complex Networks Network" (LCN2), which aims at bringing together scientists with a common interest in both theoretical models and empirical analyses of complex networks and random graphs. The LCN2 community that is being established shares the approach of using networks for describing real-world complex systems and aims at developing related analytical and numerical methods, while also being open to other research approaches for studying complex systems. The talks are designed for a broad audience, allowing for constructive exchanges of ideas between scientists from different disciplines. During and after the talk, some drinks and simple snacks are provided.
