Kyoto University Applied Mathematics Seminar (KUAMS)

In the Department of Mathematics at Graduate School of Science, Kyoto University, we hold a seminar once in a month, inviting a broad spectrum of lecturers working in various fields of mathematics and fields that connect or are expected to connect in the future to applications of mathematics. We prepare a wide range of inspiring topics carrying the features of applied mathematics and we gladly welcome the participation not only of mathematicians but also of those who do research in fields related to mathematics and feel interested.


Upcoming seminars


No. 98:   April 18, 2023 (Tue) 16:45-18:15

Andrea Chiesa (Faculty of Mathematics, University of Vienna)
"Finite-strain Poynting-Thomson model: existence and linearisation"

Andrea_sanAbstract: We investigate the large-strain Poynting-Thomson viscoelastic model under compatibility of viscous deformations. The total deformation of the body results from the successive composition of a compatible viscous deformation and an elastic one, in accordance with the classical multiplicative decomposition of the total strain. We prove existence of suitably weak solutions by a time-discretization approach based on incremental minimization. Moreover, we study the linearization of the model showing convergence to the small-strain limit.
This is joint work with Ulisse Stefanelli (Vienna) and Martin Kruzik (Prague).

Note: This talk will take place in the form of an hybrid Zoom meeting for involved members only.
