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).

# Invitation to Geometric Analysis Seminar

The Geometric Analysis Seminar will take place on **31.3.** at **10:40** in the lecture room **K4**.

**Speaker**: Carlos Mora-Corral

**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.
