The talk on **Implicitly constituted fluids and solids: modeling, analysis and computation** is held on **Monday**** November 5, 2012 at 9:00** in room K4.

**Abstract**

Implicit constitutive theory that is based on the idea of expressing the response of bodies by an implicit relation between the stress and appropriate kinematical variables, is capable of describing some of the material properties that explicit models seem unable to describe. It also provides a less standard interesting structure of the governing equations. After introducing implicit constitutive relations to describe the response of both non-linear fluids and solids, we will present several examples emphasizing the advantages of this framework on three levels: modeling of material responses, theoretical analysis of related boundary values problems and computer simulations.
