Applied Math Seminar: G-convergence as a tool for modeling of complex fluids.


3:10 pm, Neill Hall 3W

Alexander Panchenko

ABSTRACT: First, we recall some basic facts about weak convergence in L^p-spaces. Then we discuss the definition of G-convergence and its significance for modeling of multi-phase materials. Finally we present a classical example of using G-convergence to derive an effective model of a mixture of two linear elastic materials.
