## S5B4 Graduate Seminar on Modeling and Simulation with PDEs

Lecturer: Prof. Dr. Martin Rumpf

### Topic: Analysis and Numerical Methods for thin elastic structures

### Description:

In this seminar we will study thin elastic structures. The seminar will cover rigorous analysis from a calculus of variations perspective in the context of plates and shells and will introduce the participants into the numerical approximation of the resulting PDEs based on subdivision finite elements and on discrete exterior calculus.Further information can be found here.

### Schedule:

The seminar will take place as a block seminar on**Friday, 10th of January 2014,**and

**Friday, 24th of January 2014,**in the seminar room

**SR 2.040 EA 60**.
