Dear colleagues, please note the following invitation to the summer school “Geometrical modelisation in solid mechanics”.

Dear Colleagues, We would like to draw your attention to the summer school GEOMETRICAL MODELISATION IN SOLID MECHANICS organized by the GDR Géométrie Differentielle et Mécanique and Centre Henri Lebesgue which will be held in Piriac-sur-Mer (Brittany, France). This research school is organized fromMonday 8th to Friday 12th of June 2020with 4 lectures of 8h :Lecture 1 by Peter Olver :Ttitle Symmetry, conservation laws, and moving frames Keyword Lie group, group action, infinitesimal generator, Lie algebra, prolongation, partial differential equation, calculus of variations, Euler--Lagrange equations, conservation law, Noether's Theorem, elasticity, differential invariant, moving frame, signature, invariant curve and surface flowsLecture 2 by Arash Yavari :Title Geometric Nonlinear Elasticity and Anelasticity Keyword Nonlinear elasticity, dislocations, disclinations, point defects, growth mechanics, accretion, material manifold, residual stress, moving frames, Bilby-Kroner-Lee decompositionLecture 3 by Patrizio Neff :Title Scales in solids Keyword Microstructured continua, micromorphic continua, Cosserat model, Cauchy model (Piola, Green-Lagrange strains), second gradient models, Mindlin-Eringen model, lattices.Lecture 4 by Patrick Verovic :Title Finsler geometry for mechanics Keyword Generalized metrics, generalized Lagrangian, Finsler geometry, fracture, cavitation, phase fields. You are kindly requested to register for the school be foreMarch 12th, 2020Registration form and additional informations are available at https://www.lebesgue.fr/content/sem2020-MGMS-program The conference fee covering local expenses is 400 Euros.
