Two distinct paradigms are currently used to explain patterns. The workshop aims to find links and commonality between them. Many regular patterns can be explained as being the “best” possible configuration in the sense that they optimize some quantity, usually the energy. In other more dynamic cases, patterns emerge as a result of open processes with no obvious optimum energy. Nevertheless, universal mathematical connections do exist between these two approaches, even though they are typically found in quite distinct sciences. This workshop brings together scientists from these different fields to find common explanations.
