We have been made aware of a convincing email scam that is focusing on our Programme and Workshop participants. Participants may receive an email from a firm called Expo Hotel Services (ehotelservices.org) to arrange accommodation for workshops and/or programmes. This might include a request to provide them with credit card information.
Please note, INI will never ask for your card details. We take all payments via the University of Cambridge Online store https://onlinesales.admin.cam.ac.uk/.
If you have been contacted by this company please contact us as soon as possible.
There is great current interest in how the microscopic structure of a solid material influences its macroscopic response to stress. Conversely, the application of stress can influence microstructure. Microscopic damage may occur, leading ultimately to the formation of large cracks and structural failure. Phase transformations occur in some materials, creating structures at various length scales which evolve with stress.
The challenge, both for mathematics and physical modelling, is to comprehend relationships between models at different length scales. This has led already to a well-developed theory of ``homogenization'' when the scales are widely separated, and has both exploited and stimulated advances in the calculus of variations. When the scales are separated but still comparable, there is a need for a micromechanical rationale for including scale effects in macroscopic models. The phenomena may be unstable, at least at the microscopic level, and, even if stable, may admit multiple equilibria. Study of the kinetics of the processes is a key requirement, making demands both for modelling and for the analysis of partial differential equations. In particular, the (possibly hierarchical) development of large-scale patterns is an open problem.
The main focus of the programme will be on microstructure formation and evolution, as related to phase transformations, damage development and fracture. Each subject has its own group of specialists (in various mixes, mathematicians, physicists, engineers, materials scientists). There are already overlaps, both between subjects and disciplines, and it is intended that the programme will exploit and extend these, to common advantage.

INI is a creative collaborative space which is occupied by up to fifty-five mathematical scientists at any one time (and many more when there is a workshop). Some of them may not have met before and others may not realise the relevance of other research to their own work.
INI is especially important as a forum where early-career researchers meet senior colleagues and form networks that last a lifetime.
Here you can learn about all activities past, present and future, watch live seminars and submit your own proposals for research programmes.
Within this section of the website you should find all the information required to arrange and plan your visit to the Institute. If you have any further questions, or are unable to find the information you require, please get in touch with the relevant staff member or our Reception team via our contact pages.
INI and its programme participants produce a range of publications to communicate information about activities and events, publish research outcomes, and document case studies which are written for a non-technical audience. You will find access to them all in this section.
The Isaac Newton Institute aims to maximise the benefit of its scientific programmes to the UK mathematical science community in a variety of ways.
Whether spreading research opportunities through its network of correspondents, offering summer schools to early career researchers, or hosting public-facing lectures through events such as the Cambridge Festival, there is always a great deal of activity to catch up on.
Find out about all of these endeavours in this section of the site.
There are various ways to keep up-to-date with current events and happenings at the Isaac Newton Institute. As detailed via the menu links within this section, our output covers social media streams, news articles, a regular podcast series, an online newsletter, and more detailed documents produced throughout the year.
“A world famous place for research in the mathematical sciences with a reputation for efficient management and a warm welcome for visitors”
The Isaac Newton Institute is a national and international visitor research institute. It runs research programmes on selected themes in mathematics and the mathematical sciences with applications over a wide range of science and technology. It attracts leading mathematical scientists from the UK and overseas to interact in research over an extended period.
INI has a vital national role, building on many strengths that already exist in UK universities, aiming to generate a new vitality through stimulating and nurturing research throughout the country.During each scientific programme new collaborations are made and ideas and expertise are exchanged and catalysed through lectures, seminars and informal interaction, which the INI building has been designed specifically to encourage.
For INI’s knowledge exchange arm, please see the Newton Gateway to Mathematics.
The Institute depends upon donations, as well as research grants, to support the world class research undertaken by participants in its programmes.
Fundraising activities are supported by a Development Board comprising leading figures in academia, industry and commerce.
Visit this section to learn more about how you could play a part in supporting INI’s groundbreaking research.
In this section you can find contact information, staff lists, maps and details of how to find INI’s main building in Cambridge.
Our administrative staff can help you with any queries regarding a prospective or planned visit. If you would like to discuss a proposed a research programme or other event, our senior management team will be happy to help.
