Minisymposium Title: Mathematical Crystallography II. Polyhedra, Cluster Models, and Assembly
Minisymposium Description: Assembled and growing crystals, quasicrystals, and other highly ordered structures may be modeled using polyhedra and polytopes, Delaunay sets, complexes and clusters, and similar structures. While convex polyhedra have long used as tiles in representing periodic structures, generalized crystallography requires more generalized structures.
