Quasicrystals in Scotland

Michael Engel presented the opening lecture at the ICMS conference “Quasicrystals: pattern formation and aperiodic order” in Edinburgh. This conference brought together four different research communities to advance the understanding of quasicrystals (QCs) and aperiodic order: (i) QCs in materials science, (ii) QCs in soft matter, (iii) QCs in partial differential equations (PDEs) and (iv) QCs in aperiodic tilings.
