ESSAM School on Mathematical Modelling, Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing

Date: 29/05/2016  – 03/06/2016
Place: Kácov, Czech Republic

The aim of the school is to promote the interconnection of mathematical modeling, analysis, and computational methods used in solving complex (real-world) problems. The lectures will be prepared with a broad multidisciplinary audience in mind, and at each school a broad scope, ranging from modeling to scientific computing, will be covered. Usually four main speakers deliver a series of three lectures. Ample time within the school is allocated for the promotion of informal scientific discussions among the participants.

Speakers and topics of the 2016 school are:

  • Peter Bastian (Universität Heidelberg, Germany), [Simulation of Multiphase Flows in Porous Media].
  • Jörg Liesen (Technische Universität Berlin, Germany), [Krylov subspaces. Classical mathematics, iterative methods, and surprisinglinks].
  • Jan Mandel (University of Colorado at Denver, USA), [Probability on spaces of functions, with applications to inverse problems and dataassimilation].
  • Richard Katz (University of Oxford, UK), [Two-phase fluid dynamics of partially molten rock: fundamentals and application to the Earth].

The school is organized under the auspices of the European Mathematical Society (EMS) and Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Charles University in Prague (MFF UK), as an activity of the Nečas Center for Mathematical Modeling. Participants will have a possibility to present a short communication (maximally 10 minutes in the dependence on the number of
participants contributing to this kind of activity).

The deadline for registration and submission of abstracts is May 2, 2016.

Registration is now open at http://essam-masc.cuni.cz/ including the additional information about the venue, program and deadlines.

Title: Existence of solutions in peridynamics and convergence to classical elasticity

Abstract: Peridynamics is a model in Solid Mechanics formulated by S. Silling in 2000. Its main difference with the usual Cauchy-Green elasticity relies in its non-locality, which reflects the fact that particles at a positive distance exert an interaction force upon each other. Mathematically, the deformations are not assumed to have weak derivatives, in contrast with hyperelasticity, where they are assumed to be Sobolev. In this talk we study the variational theory of time-independent problems in peridynamics. In this formulation, the energy of a deformation is expressed as a double integral, and resembles the energy functional of a nonlocal singular p-Laplacian. In particular, we will explain optimal conditions over the integrand guaranteeing that the energy admits a minimum, and, hence, that the problem has an equilibrium solution. Moreover, we will see how the Cauchy-Green elasticity theory can be recovered from this nonlocal theory as a Gamma-limit when the interaction distance tends to zero.

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!
