7th FAPERJ School: The dynamics and assembly of soft structures (14-2)
April 20, 2014 – April 26, 2014
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Mark Bowick, Syracuse University
Paul Chaikin, New York University
Elisa Baggio Saitovitch, CBPF
Isabel Cristina Carvalho, PUC-Rio
This school will explore current research directions in both active soft matter systems, where dynamics and internal energy consumption drive the system away from equilibrium, as well as novel equilibrium systems made possible by complex order parameter spaces, geometry and topology.
