On the motion of a compact elastic body

Beig, R (Vienna)
Monday 28 November 2005, 16:00-17:00

Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute


We study the problem of motion of a relativistic, ideal elastic solid with free surface boundary by casting the equations in material form ("Lagrangian coordinates"). By applying a basic theorem due to Koch, we prove short-time existence and uniqueness for solutions close to a trivial solution. This trivial, or natural, solution corresponds to a stress-free body in rigid motion. The talk is based on joint work with M.Wernig-Pichler
