The Matriarch project began in the summer of 2013 as an RSI project hosted
by the Laboratory for
Atomistic and Molecular Mechanics at the Massachusetts Institute of
Technology. Ravi Jagadeesan created the Matriarch program library under
the supervision of Prof. Markus J. Buehler, Dr. David Spivak, and Dr.
The Matriarch project is an extension of the work pertaining to the
connection between materials science and category theory that
David, Tristan, and Markus have been establishing for the last few years.
The project idea was to design a program that would use the mathematical
framework of operads to produce hierarchical protein materials, such as
collagen. Within a few months the Matriarch program was born.
Matriarch is an open-source Python library and is intended to be
