Modern Trends in Mathematical Crystallography
Second Manila International Workshop on Mathematical Crystallography

Manila, 20-24 May 2017

During the past years, the area of mathematical crystallography has enlarged beyond the study of the fundamental properties of symmetry and periodicity of crystals. This workshop has introduced the participants to current topics and new directions in mathematical crystallography and its applications. New trends on the group- and graph-theoretic as well as topological aspects of mathematical crystallography have been discussed. Topics on discrete models of crystals, from periodic to aperiodic, and highly ordered structures have also been presented. These include the study of domain structures, mathematical crystallography tools for practical crystallography, applications of graph theory to crystal structure analysis, substitution tilings, tilings and their dynamical propetries, coincident site lattices, polyhedra, nets, and complexes, and cluster models of aperiodic structures.

This workshop targetted young scientists (graduate and post-doctoral students) and researchers in mathematics, materials science, structural chemistry, and other related fields. Among its expected outcomes were exposure to research opportunities in mathematical crystallography, a heightened awareness of scientists in the Philippines and the Asia-Pacific region on the relevance of mathematical crystallography in their respective researches, and collaborations between researchers in mathematical crystallography and experimentalists.

Venue

The workshop has been held at the Science Education Complex Buildings A and B (SEC A and B), Ateneo de Manila University, Katipunan Avenue, Loyola Heights, Quezon City 1108, Philippines.
