Summer school “Geometrical modelisation in solid mechanics”

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

Lecture 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 decomposition
Lecture 3 by Patrizio Neff :
 Title  Scales in solids
