Who Should Attend
Graduate students, post-docs, university faculty and industrial researchers interested in a broad introduction to the current state of the field of jamming. We particularly encourage participation of graduate students and post-docs.
At the jamming transition, a disordered collection of particles is perched precariously between a solid and a liquid state. At this special point, the behavior of the system is controlled by new physics, not expected from studies of ordinary crystals or liquids.
Over the last decade, a number of researchers have explored the connection between the jamming transition and the glass transition, colloidal glass transition, and jamming of foams and granular packings. In addition, connections have been established between the marginally jammed solid at densities just above the transition and the low temperature properties of glasses.
This tutorial will provide introductory reviews by the leading experts in the field.
- The jamming transition and the marginally jammed solid
- Effects of friction, long-ranged interactions, temperature and particle shape on jamming transition
- Connection between the jamming transition and the glass transition
- The marginally jammed solid and the low temperature properties of glasses
