TMR-Network, Team 7

TMR network "Phase Transitions in Crystalline Solids" (FMRX-CT98-0229)

Research programme of the MPI MIS

The Max-Planck Institut for Mathematics in the Sciences was founded in October 1996 and has the mission to foster the exchange between mathematics and the sciences. The research group of Prof. Müller focusses on applications to continuum mechanics, phase transitions and materials science. Within the Network activity this team will concentrate on various aspects of the variational models of microstructure (semicontinuity, Gamma-convergence, regularity, influence of surface energy on microstructure formation, efficient description of microstructure and computation of macroscopic properties, with applications to magnetostrictive materials), and will perform numerical computation of microstructure.

Post-doctoral research programmes envisaged by this team include:

  • calculus of variations applied to nonlinear elasticity;
  • influence of surface energy on microstructures;
  • efficient description and numerical computation of microstructure.

The desired scientific background of the candidates to the positions offered by this team is PDE's and calculus of variations.
