Abstract: F07.00008 : Renormalization group analysis of frustrated self-assembly*
12:54 PM–1:06 PM
To elucidate this relationship, we propose to apply real space renormalization to an on-lattice aggregation model. This will enable us to determine the relevant features of the interaction between complex particles, thus providing us with a general classification of local interactions resulting in fibrous, crystalline, or finite-size aggregates, respectively.
The emergence of these distinct morphologies may be relevant to the aggregation of misfolded proteins into pathological fibers, in neurodegenerative and other diseases.
