Singularities in mechanics :
formation, propagation, and microscopic description.

The lectures

There will be two types of lectures, an introductory course especially intended for students (level : second year of master), and four specialized courses related to singularities as applied to the fields of solid mechanics, fluid mechanics et problems involving fronts and interfaces.

Introductory course
Modeling of cracks in a solid
Vortex dynamics in an incompressible fluid
Capillary drops and contact angle problems
Interfaces and hydrodynamic instabilities

Program organized by the Centre Emile Borel
Institut Henri Poincaré, January 7th - April 4th, 2008.
