Yielding versus depinning in disordered systems

A workshop in Paris, October 22-24, 2018

Organisers: Elisabeth Agoritsas and Francesco Zamponi

  • Misaki Ozawa (Université de Montpellier)
  • Alberto Rosso (Université Paris-Saclay)
  • Sri Sastry (Jawaharlal Center Bangalore)
  • Damien Vandembroucq (ESPCI Paris)
  • Anaël Lemaître (Laboratoire NAVIER, Université Paris-Est)
  • Stefano Zapperi (Università di Milano)

This workshop will be focused on the analogy between the yielding transition of amorphous materials under load and the depinning transition of elastic objects driven in a quenched disordered landscape. Related topics such as plasticity, avalanches, and jamming will be discussed.

Note the two different locations: ENS Paris, 24 Rue Lhomond (Monday and Wednesday), and Collège des Irlandais, 5 Rue des Irlandais, Paris (Tuesday)

This workshop is supported by the Simons Collaboration on Cracking the Glass Problem

Simons Collaborations, made possible by support from the Simons Foundation, bring together groups of outstanding scientists to address mathematical or theoretical topics of fundamental scientific importance in which a significant new development has created a novel area for exploration or provided a new direction for progress in an established field.
