DIMACS Workshop on Combinatorial Optimization and Disordered Materials: Recent Progress and Algorithmic Challenges

May 15-17, 1997
DIMACS Center, CoRE Building, Rutgers University

Organizing Committee:
P.M. Duxbury (Chair) (Physics, MSU) duxbury@pa.msu.edu

There is potential for ideas and algorithms familiar in graph theory and combinatorial optimization to have an important impact on the understanding of the ground state of disordered systems. The purpose of this workshop is to stimulate communication between the combinatorial math community and scientists and engineers in this area. As well as the seminars on recent research results, there will be introductory talks covering the relevant materials problems and the approximate analytic results and rigorous bounds which are available. There will also be introductory talks on combinatorial optimization and graph theory concepts. Topics to be covered include:
