Fronts, Fluctuations, & Growth

By Charlie Doering

The conference "Fronts, Fluctuations, & Growth", sponsored by the Michigan Center for Theoretical Physics and organized by C. Doering, L. Sander, P. Semereka and R. Ziff, was held at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, May 20-25, 2002. Twenty five speakers gave in-depth presentations of frontier research into questions of front propagation and growth processes in mesoscopic and microscopic systems where fluctuations play a crucial role in the dynamics. The invited presentations were:

Other highlights of the meeting included a stimulating poster session, a tasty conference dinner and an extremely lively closing discussion. But for some conference participants perhaps the most exciting activity was their first major league baseball game, where we saw the Detroit Tigers play the Cleveland Indians on a spectacular spring evening!
