MORE: talk by M. Bulíček

The talk on Existence of solutions for the anti-plane stress of an elastic body characterized by the linearized strain that is a non-linear function of the stress is held on Monday November 12, 2012 at 9:00 in room K4.

The main purpose of this study is to establish the existence of weak solution to the anti-plane stress problem for a class of recently proposed new models that could describe of elastic materials in which the stress can increase while the strain yet remains small. Further qualitative properties of the solution will be investigated as well. Although the considered class of models shares certain similarities with the minimal surface problem the presence of additional model parameter studied in a specific range makes the presented result different from those asscoiated with the minimal surface problem.
