Talks by PhD students and internal meeting

Doctoral students supported by the Center will give talks on Monday, March 4 at 8:30 in lecture hall K4. A detailed schedule will be available soon. Anyone interested is warmly welcomed.

After the lectures we will meet to discuss both scientific and non-scientific issues concerning the Center and its management in the rest of the year. All MathMAC members are cordially invited to attend the meeting.

Update

We have fixed the speakers and the schedule, see below. Each lecture will take ten minutes, therefore we expect that the internal meeting will start approximately at 9:30.

Adam Janečka Numerical simulation of motion of a fluid with pressure-dependent viscosity under a surface load
Martin Řehoř Squeeze flow of an incompressible fluid with pressure-dependent viscosity: Numerical simulation
Lenka Slavíková Fine properties of Sobolev spaces
Ivan Soukup Weak solutions for a class of nonlinear integrodifferential equations
Filip Soudský Normability of Lorentz spaces - An alternative approach


Day with Physics

Václav Kučera, Luboš Pick and Vít Průša will deliver lectures at Day with Physics. The lectures will be delived in Czech and the titles are the following "Simulace (nejen) fyzikálních jevů na počítači", "Čísla oblíbená i neoblíbená a další matematické kuriozity, aneb jak nás matfyzáky vidí svět a hlavně kam nás vede klamná 'vědecká' intuice" and "Teplo, nevratnost a čas".

For more information, please visit the webpages of the event.

New seminar “Modelling of materials — theory, model reduction and efficient numerical methods”

A new seminar Modelling of materials -- theory, model reduction and efficient numerical methods has been founded in connection with the project ERC-CZ MORE. Some MathMac meetings will be held as integral part of this seminar. Everybody is welcome to join the seminar.

Invited talks at the Annual Meeting of the German Mathematical Society

Tomáš Bárta and Vít Průša have delivered invited talks at the Annual Meeeting of the German Mathematical Society. The titles of the talks were "Chemicaly reacting viscoelastic fluids" (Tomáš Bárta) and "Implicitly constituted material models" (Vít Průša). Both talks were part of mini-symposium "Complex fluids".

Model reduction in continuum thermodynamics: Modeling, analysis and computation

In September we (Josef Málek) have organized a workshop in Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Scientific Discovery (Banff, Alberta, Canada). The title of the workshop is Model reduction in continuum thermodynamics: Modeling, analysis and computation. Workshop videos (video recordings of the talks) are available here.

6th European Congress of Mathematics: Minisymposium on implicitly constituted material models

We are proud to announce that we (Josef Málek, Charles University in Prague and Endre Süli, University of Oxford) will be organizing minisymposium Implicitly constituted material models: modeling and analysis. The minisymposium will be a part of the 6th European Congress of Mathematics which will take place on July 2-7, 2012 in Krakow.

The objective of the minisymposium is to:

  • introduce the implicit constitutive theory which is a new framework for developing material models in continuum mechanics,
  • show that the new framework leads to systems of partial differential equations that have very interesting structure,
  • discuss challenging mathematical issues related to the newly developed models,
  • present some recent mathematical results in this field.

See minisymposium webpage for a schedule and lecture abstracts.

ERC-CZ project “Implicitly constituted material models: From theory through model reduction to efficient numerical methods”

Josef Málek has, as the pricipal investigator, recived a grant in the ERC-CZ programme. The project named "Implicitly constituted material models: From theory through model reduction to efficient numerical methods" is going to be funded from September 2012 to August 2017, and we assume that the project will substantially influence research activities of the MathMAC centre.

The other team members are Zdeněk Strakoš, Eduard Feireisl, Endre Süli (Oxford University), Miroslav Bulíček, Ondřej Souček, Jaroslav Hron and Vít Průša. It is expected that the team will be completed by several PhD. students and postdocs. (The vacancies will be filled by an external, open competition.)

Congratulations!
