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.

How to meet star mathematicians ?

How to meet  star mathematicians ? Simple as death. It is neccesarry just to join Heidelberg Laureate Forum, where excellent students, PhD students and post-docs meet with Fields, Abel and Turing laureates.

MathMAC seminar

On 20th May, 8:30 at Sokolovska 83, Prague, room K4 will take place the seminar of MathMAC UNCE project. Junior researchers will present their newest results and they will partly continue to outline the fields of their research.

Everybody is welcome.



Programme:   Schedule

Inaugural seminar of Necas Center for Mathematical Modeling

Necas Ceter for Mathematical Modeling (NCMM) is a research platform whose ambition is to coordinate and support research and education activities of several Czech Republic based research teams working in theoretical and applied mathematics. On 2.5. 2013 at 14:00 in refectory, Malostranské náměstí 25, Praha 1 the opening ceremony will be held. Since NCMM is important partner center of our UNCE, it is expected that the members will participate on.

For the details see:      pozv_NC_05-2013

The link to the webpage of the center is :    Nečas Center for Mathematical Modeling

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.


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

MathMAC seminar

  • 9:00 - Therese Mieth (Friedrich-Schiller Universität Jena):  Traces of weighted Besov spaces
  • 9:40 - Benjamin Scharf (Friedrich-Schiller Universität Jena):  Wavelets in function spaces on celular domains
