An engineer thinks that his equations are an approximation to reality.
A physicist thinks that reality is an approximation to his equations.
A mathematician doesn't care.
A tragedy of mathematics is a beautiful conjecture ruined by an ugly fact.
|My research areas are:|
Nonconvex Variational Problems
|Dynamics of unstable materials and the phase transition||Optimality of bio-materials: search for functionals.||Dynamics of damageable matherials.|
|You can find here an informal description of some unsolved problems in these areas.|
