Theory

In materials science, theory is a category that spans the calculation of properties ranging from atomic interactions to molecular structure to nano- and micro- structure, to finite element modeling of macroscopic materials. Theory includes analysis, computation and simulation. Cornell has extensive infrastructure to support computation-based research, and its culture of collaboration is especially conducive to productive interactions between theory and experiment.
