Research project and job description

Title : Variational approach and homogenisation for dispersive waves in solids

Summary : This post-doc position is dedicated to the study of dispersive waves propagation. Dispersive shock waves and solitary waves are typical solutions of dispersive models. These waves appear in various applications such as quantum systems (ultra-cold atoms, semi-conductors, electron beams, nonlinear photonics, collision-less shocks in plasmas), hydrodynamics (surface waves) and in solid mechanics (phononic crystals, micro-structured materials). During this post-doc, only dispersive waves in solid mechanics will be investigated. These waves appear in isotropic materials as soon as geometrical effects are taken into account. The simplest example is bending waves in a bounded bar...
