Minisymposium Title: Efficient Numerical Methods and Analytical Techniques for Defect Problems

Minisymposium Description: Defects in crystalline materials, such as vacancies, dislocations, cracks, grain boundaries and surfaces, play important roles in the mechanical, electronic, and plastic properties of these materials. The complexity of the microstructures of these defects and their evolution at various length and time scales presents new challenges for numerical simulations and analytical modeling. The speakers in this minisymposium will discuss recent advances in the aspects of efficient numerical methods and analytical techniques as well as the obtained new findings for these defect problems
