Research Area 2. Graph-Based Functionality Metrics for Colloidal Particle Systems

COMPASS is establishing and validating the relationships between graph-based representation of particles  and mechanical, electrical, and chemical properties representing basic functionalities of particle systems. These relationships emerge from the consideration of transport phenomena and connectivity patterns in the context of networks. Unlike social, financial, ecological and other networks, we will consider networks that transport stress, charge and mass, that produce unprecedented system behavior and unique property combinations described by a unifying graph theoretical and network science framework. Such phenomena and relations will be established across  length and time scales from the atomistic to the macroscopic.
