Lecture Series / Conference / Course :
There has been tremendous developments in recent times in understanding how various materials, ranging from crystals to amorphous assemblies, spanning across soft and hard matter, respond to mechanical perturbations of various kinds leading to plasticity, fracture, flow etc. Insight into the underlying processes involves physical descriptions and modeling over large length-scales, bringing forth researchers across disciplines with varying expertise to develop a common understanding. The school aims to have pedagogical interactions on related topics and provide students and researchers with an exposure of the recent developments.
