The team is working on the following topics:

  • Asymptotic methods and applications
  • Homogenization theory
  • Microperiodic structure optimization
  • Variational methods for coupling problems, fluid-structure interaction and coupled Navier-Stokes - Darcy flows
  • PDEs in Fluid Mechanics
  • Nonlinear Water Waves
  • Fluid Stability Problems
  • Geophysical Fluid Dynamics
  • Dislocation in Hele-Shaw cells or in porous media
  • Non-Newtonian fluids
  • Heat and mass transfer in porous media
  • Diffusion and convection
  • Geometric evolution problems (brittle fracture, image segmentation)
  • Bipotentials theory with applications (friction, damage, non-associated laws)
  • Hamiltonian mechanics and dissipation
  • Quasiconvexity and non-linear elasticity
  • Differential calculus in metric spaces (sub-riemannian geometry, dilation structures)
  • Optimization problems
  • Domain decomposition methods
  • Multigrid methods for variational inequalities and saddle point problems
  • Multigrid methods associated with explicit Moreau-Yosida regularizations
  • Embedding domain methods and optimal control problems
  • Numerical methods for nonlinear mechanical problems and financial derivatives

There are two scientific seminars, an internal seminar and a joint one with the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science, University of Bucharest
