Applied Analysis for Materials
25 August - 5 September 2014
This School is devoted to the mathematical modeling and analysis of various types of materials like solitons, inelastic solids, and more. The main weight is put on the foundations and description of methods and results from applied analysis that are used to describe these materials and their physical properties, which are essentially several types of partial differential equations. Phenomena like damages, viscosity, phase separation, waves and more are discussed. Mathematical topics covered comprise gradient flows, (stochastic) homogenisation, variational inequalities and much more. The speakers are well-known mathematicians working in applied fields.
The School is primarily aimed at graduate students, but also to postdocs, working in applied analysis or physics with strong mathematical flavour.
Uwe Bandelow (WIAS): Basic equations of classical soliton theory: solutions and applications
Dietmar Hömberg (TU Berlin and WIAS): Optimal control and shape design problems in thermomechanics
Dorothee Knees (Uni Kassel): Evolutionary variational inequalities in the context of inelastic solids
The course is supported by Alexander Mielke's ERC grant AnaMultiScale.
Claude Le Bris (ENPC): Nonperiodic homogenization of elliptic equations: stochastic and deterministic approaches
Alexander Mielke (HU Berlin and WIAS): Multiscale modeling and evolutionary Gamma-convergence for gradient flows
Christoph Ortner (U Warwick): Atomistic/Continuum Multiscale Methods
The movie "Colors of Math" will be presented by courtesy of the producer Ekaterina Eremenko (SFB Discretization in Geometry and Dynamics, TU Berlin).
There will be a farewell party with drinks and snacks on Thursday, 4 September 2014, in MA 209 starting at around 6.15pm.
Application is closed.
