|Title:||Predictive and Efficient Atomistic to Continuum Hybrid Methods|
|Seminar:||Computational and Applied Mathematics Colloquium|
|Speaker:||Mitchell Luskin, School of Mathematics, University of Minnesota|
|Many materials problems require the accuracy of atomistic
modeling in small regions, such as the neighborhood
of a crack tip. However, these localized defects
typically interact elastically with a much larger
region which cannot be computed atomistically.
Materials scientists have attempted to compute
solutions to these multiscale problems by coupling
atomistic models near the localized defect with
continuum models where the deformation is nearly
uniform. I will give an introduction to our
research to develop predictive and efficient
atomistic to continuum coupling methods.
