Nanotechnology is a rapidly growing and exciting research area that is constantly issuing new challenges. Research in this field is dominated by experiment and computation, whilst the associated theory required to advance development is lagging behind. The purpose of the Nanomath 2012 Workshop is to bring together mathematicians, chemists, physicists and engineers to explore the potential for mathematicians and experimental scientists to gain a better insight into the workings of the nanoworld.
The meeting will be held at the Centre de Recerca Matemàtica on the outskirts of Barcelona. It will be primarily educational, with an emphasis on recent developments in Applied Mathematical Modelling, consisting of short courses and lectures of an expository, general nature related to nanotechnology and interspersed with related research presentations.
- Dr. Revathi Bacsa, Université de Toulouse (1 hour) Synthesis of carbon nanotubes and graphene using the chemical vapour deposition method
- Professor Wolfgang Bacsa, Université de Toulouse (3 hours) Carbon nanotubes and graphene: a perspective from materials physics; carbon nanotubes polymer composites
- Professor James Hill, University of Adelaide (8 hours) Applied Mathematical Modelling in Nanotechnology
- Professor Tim Myers, Centre de Recerca Matemàtica (2 hours) Introduction to Nanofluid Flow
