Prof. Taylor and mathematisation of materials science!

Prof. Jean Taylor gave a talk today in TIFR-Mathematics centre on "Some mathematical challenges in materials science". For those of you, who have seen this, the addition was the grain rotation stuff that was published recently. A nice, albeit a bit too mathematical, talk. The talk was pitched for mathematicians and ended with the moral that materials science is the place where mathematicians should be looking for problems to solve. Reminded me of this talk of Michael Atiyah, where the emphasis was on the role that physics may play in mathematics research.
