An invitation to odd viscoelasticity

Active matter describes out-of equilibrium systems whose constituents consume energy or perform work. As a result their macroscopic description differs significantly from continuum field theories that follow from equilibrium statistical mechanics.  Recently, research on active matter has led us to question the foundations of materials science. These developments have resulted in a new theoretical framework called odd (visco)elasticity. Elasticity approximates solids as continuous media, deforming under external forces. At the microscopic level, when a force is applied on a crystalline body, the atoms get displaced and respond by pushing back to restore the original shape of a crystal. This behaviour is profoundly altered in active odd materials, which do not just compress or deform under shear, but also deflect. This workshop is meant to discuss recent advances in odd elasticity as well as identify relevant questions and possible future directions.
