Graphs, tilings and crystal structures

Comments

Covalent crystals and supramolecular structures from MOFs to DNA nanostructures may be represented by combinatorial structures such as graphs and tilings. Considered topologically, the connectivity and symmetry properties of these structures are useful for design and classification. For example, combinatorial and topological properties such as coordination sequences or smallest rings are used in cataloguing crystal nets. Considered geometrically, the realizations of these structures have implications for functionality and analysis. Both topology and geometry underlie program design for crystallographic computation. This session will span the spectrum from the underlying theory of combinatorial, geometrical and topological structures used to model crystals to the development of heuristics and algorithms for crystal design and analysis.
