Applied Math Seminar: A discrete model of solid-solid phase transitions


3:10 PM, Webster B8

Alexander Panchenko

Abstract: We discuss a 2D discrete model of phase transitions. The model is a periodic lattice of non-linear springs. Each spring is capable of phase transition. This leads to an unusual collective behavior of the lattice. Some preliminary results will be presented.
