Abstract:

This project produced a National Research Council report from the Board on Mathematical Sciences, Mathematical Research in Materials Science. Opportunities and Perspectives, that documents and presents technical details of fruitful collaborations between the mathematical sciences and materials science, and indicates areas of mathematical sciences research holding the most promise for advancing materials science. Written primarily for mathematical and materials science researchers with an interest in advancing research at this interface, as well as for federal and state agency representatives interested in encouraging such collaborations, it focuses on directions for potentially promising collaboration between materials scientists and mathematical scientists, and encourages both communities to increase such collaborations. It emphasizes that both the mathematical sciences and materials science communities have much to pin from an increase in cross-disciplinary collaborations, and presents recommendations for facilitating mathematical sciences research that bears on important issues in materials science, including recommendations on how to attract students and young researchers to this area. It seeks to encourage research directions in the mathematical sciences that complement vital materials science research, and raise awareness of the value of quantitative methods in materials science. The NRC report is available through National Academy Press.
