Homogenisation of periodic problems in linear PDEs and non-linear elasticity
This project is advertised as part of the EPSRC Doctoral Training Partnership. It is currently not available to self-funded applicants.
The student will learn about ideas from mathematical analysis and differential equations which exploit modern techniques of analysis of periodic problems and deal with multi-scale analysis, dimension reduction, asymptotic approximation.
Some of the problems have direct applications to the design and engineering of composite materials (metamaterials).
