Main Themes of Works

  • Numerical analysis of finite difference methods and general variational approximation methods: Discrete Green’s functions; discrete maximum principle and convergence; nonlinear problems of monotone type.
  • Numerical analysis of the finite element method in general: Lagrange and Hermite interpolation theory in Rn; discrete maximum principle and uniform convergence; curved finite elements ; numerical integration.
  • Numerical analysis of the finite element method applied to problems in elasticity and fluid mechanics: Non-conforming finite elements and macro-elements for plate problems; mixed method for the biharmonic equation in fluid mechanics; finite element methods for shell problems.
  • Modeling and mathematical analysis in three-dimensional linearized and nonlinear elasticity: Existence of solutions; incremental methods; modeling of constitutive equations; modeling of contact and noninterpenetration.
  • Mathematical analysis of the von Kármán and generalized von Kármán equations: Existence, multiplicity, and bifurcation of solutions, equivalence with a "displacement" problem.
  • Modeling of plates by the techniques of asymptotic analysis and singular perturbations: Convergence to a two-dimensional model in the linear case; justification of two-dimensional model, including the von Kármán equations, in the nonlinear case by formal asymptotic expansions; extension to “shallow shells”; “generalized” von Kármán and Marguerre-von Kármán equations.
  • Modeling, mathematical analysis, and numerical simulation of “elastic multi-structures” that comprise junctions: Convergence to a “pluri-dimensional” model in the linear case; justification of the boundary conditions of clamping for a plate; vibrations of a multi-structure.
  • Modeling and mathematical analysis of general shells: Existence theorems for two-dimensional linear shell models (W.T. Koiter, P.M. Naghdi, “flexural”, “membrane”); justification of two-dimensional linear shell models (“membrane” and “flexural” equations; W.T. Koiter’s equations) by the techniques of asymptotic analysis; existence theory for nonlinear shell equations; definition of a new nonlinear shell model “of Koiter’s type”; intrinsic shell equations.
  • Intrinsic methods in elasticity: Reformulation of linear shell theory with the linearized change of metric and change of curvature tensors as new unknowns; Saint-Venant and Donati compatibility conditions in Sobolev spaces; implementation as a finite element method with "edge" finite elements; reformulation of nonlinear three-dimensional elasticity in terms of the Cauchy-Green strain tensor as the only unknown.
  • Functional analysis: Weak Poincaré lemma and weak Saint Venant compatibility conditions; generalization of the Cesàro-Volterra formula; linear and nonlinear Donati compatibility conditions; relations between the lemma of Jacques-Louis Lions, Nečas inequality, de Rham theorem, and Bogovskii theorem.
  • Differential geometry: Inequalities of Korn’s type on a surface; rigidity theorems and manifold theory; recovery and continuity of a manifold, with or without boundary, as a function of its metric tensor; nonlinear Korn inequalities in an open set of Rn; recovery of a surface, with or without boundary, with prescribed first and second fundamental forms; continuity of a surface, with or without boundary, considered as a function of its two fundamental forms; nonlinear Korn inequalities on a surface.
