[Call for papers] [Reg.fee] [Accommodation][Address]
The Summer school will be organized by Institute of Problems of Mechanical
Engineering,Russian Academy of Sciences. "Nonlinear oscillations -
98" (Applied Mathematics and Mechanics) is the twenty-sixth in a series
of annual summer schools on application of mathematics to nonlinear oscillations
problems. The purpose of the school is to attract the attention of researchers
to recent results in application of mathematics to nonlinear oscillations
problems. The lectures will be given by well known scientists.
Summer school is a meeting with a limited number of participants (not
more than 60). This School will be held in pansionat "Zarya",
Repino, 40 km from St.Petersburg.
The scientific programme focuses on seven main topics:
- Solid mechanics (nonlinear oscillations,chaos, stability and control,
multibody systems and kinematics);
- Fluid and gas mechanics including turbulence;
- Mechanical engineering;
- Computational mechanics;
- Numerical analysis (finite elements, boundary elements and wavelets);
- Wave motion and acoustics;
- Elasticity, damage and fracture.
Each topic is assigned a special session consisting of two invited lectures
and three contributed lectures.The working languages for the school are
English and Russian.
