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.
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.
||Numerical simulation of motion of a fluid with pressure-dependent viscosity under a surface load
||Squeeze flow of an incompressible fluid with pressure-dependent viscosity: Numerical simulation
||Fine properties of Sobolev spaces
||Weak solutions for a class of nonlinear integrodifferential equations
||Normability of Lorentz spaces - An alternative approach
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.
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.
Miroslav Bulíček has been awarded by a grant from NFKJ (Nadační fond Karla Janečka), see the press release. The topic of the supported research is "Qualitative analysis of incompressible Navier--Stokes--Fourier equations" (Kvalitativní analýza nestlačitelných Navierových-Stokesových-Fourierových rovnic). Congratulations!
Josef Málek and Vít Průša have published a popularizing paper on modelling of non-newtonian fluids Nejdéle trvající vědecký experiment in Czech popular science journal Vesmír.
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".
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.
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.
We are (with our collaborators) organizing an international summer school on evolution equations EVEQ 2012. For details see the webpages of the school.
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.)
