Abstract : During this period os support they have continued long-term program of investigating the shapes of surfaces in mathematical models for crystals (including polycrystalline materials), both in equilibrium and in growth. The accomplishments included the completion of seven papers, all of which have either appeared in print or are in press, and working on five more, three of which have since been finished and accepted for publication. Also completed one videotape that will soon be published. Four Papers that had previously been written appeared in print during the period of this grant. In addition, one AMA Special Session was organized and one week long workshop at The Geometry Center, and initiated and edited the proceedings of both (the second after this grant expired). These proceedings are highly innovative in that they include videotapes. The PI gave a large number of invited talks at a variety of meetings.
