Mini-Symposium MS-20 within the ENOC 2020   (Website)

2020 - July 5th to 10th at University of Lyon, France

The 10th European Nonlinear Dynamics Conference (ENOC 2020) will be held in Lyon, France on July 5-10, 2020. The ENOC conferences aim at covering the complete field of Nonlinear Dynamics, including Multibody Dynamics and coupling to Stability, Identification, Control and (Structural) Optimization. Francesco Romeo, Yuli Starosvetsky and Marco Lepidi are organizing the Mini-symposium MS-20 on Wave Propagation in Mechanical Systems and Nonlinear Metamaterial (link) The Mini-Symposium will focus on wave approaches for the analysis of nonlinear dynamics phenomena in mechanical systems, including (but not being limited to) contributions in the following topics: (i) Wave propagation in continuum mechanics, (ii) Wave propagation in periodic structures, (iii) Wave propagation in acoustic metamaterials, (iv) Wave localization phenomena, (v) Wave propagation in granular media. We are pleased to invite you to participate in the mini-symposium.

Courses on Perturbation Methods 2020   (Website)

2020 - February 10th to 14th at University of Genova, Italy

The PhD program in Civil, Chemical and Environmental Engineering is hosted by the DICCA - Dipartimento di Ingegneria Civile, Chimica e Ambientale at the University of Genova. Within the PhD program, Professors Giovanna Vittori, Nicoletta Tambroni, Marco Lepidi and Giuseppe Piccardo offer the courses Perturbation Methods I and Perturbation Methods II. The course Perturbation Methods I (PMI, 10 hours, 2 credits, lectures by G. Vittori and N. Tambroni, download) introduces perturbation methods as suited methodological approaches for calculating analytical -- although asymptotically approximate -- solutions for physical-mathematical problems featured by a dimensionless parameter that can be a priori postulated to be very small or very large. The course Perturbation Methods II (PMII 10 hours, 2 credits, lectures by M. Lepidi and G. Piccardo, download) deals with complementary or advanced methodological and applicative aspects concerned with the employment of asymptotic techniques. During the two courses, the perturbation-based solutions of algebraic and differential problems are presented by means of traditional and advanced tools. Different mathematical issues recurring in the fields of Mathematical Engineering, Fluid and Structural Mechanics are faced, including eigenproblems, dimension reductions, boundary layers, static/dynamic bifurcations, self-excited and forced oscillations and parametrically excited systems. The two courses consist of lectures and guided exercises. Softwares for symbolic computation are also introduced and didactic material is distributed. Passing a final written test (solution one or more simple problems for each course) within one month after the end of the course is necessary to gain the credits. The courses are scheduled every two years, free of charge and are open to interested PhD students from other Departments and/or Universities. The courses will be held in the week 10th-14th February 2020 and time-scheduled in series. The detailed program of lectures will be available at the beginning of February 2020. The deadline for applications is 20th January 2020. Confirmation can be sent by e-mail to Nicoletta Tambroni (Nicoletta.Tambroni@unige.it) for PMI and Marco Lepidi (Marco.Lepidi@unige.it) or Giuseppe Piccardo (Giuseppe.Piccardo@unige.it) for PMII.
