Abstract: Interfaces or defects in crystalline materials, such as vacancies, dislocations, cracks, grain boundaries, and surfaces, play important roles in the mechanical, electronic, and plastic properties of these materials. The complexity of modeling microstructures of these defects and their evolution at various length and time scales presents new challenges for mathematical modeling and analysis. Multiphysics models are required to accurately describe the complicated interactions among various defects involved in the equilibrium and dynamics processes. The speakers in this minisymposium will discuss recent advances in the modeling approaches and new findings obtained in analysis and simulations.
