Title:  The Nonlinear Elastography Problem

This talk gives an introduction to the elasticity equations and their use in modelling physical and biological media. A good question is then how to construct approximations to the elastic waves in order to accurately describe the physical phenomena one is seeing. We introduce a new more robust model for the nonlinear problem. After describing  an inverse boundary value problem for the nonlinear equation, we give an idea of how one can recover properties of the system (what is classically known as the Lame parameters) from the model waves.

Colloquium coordinators are Prof.dr. A.J. van der Schaft (a.j.van.der.schaft,

EWM-NL visits Groningen

The association of professional female mathematicians in the Netherlands is going to visit Groningenon the 17th of October. Join for lunch and an interesting discussion!

EWM-NL is the Dutch branch of EWM (European women in mathematics). They would like to meet you and get feedback on what issues you find important and how EWM-NL could help with that.

This is a chance to learn about EWM-NL, discover its goals and activities, and join the open discussion on gender-balance in mathematics.

Who: all mathematicians! (male, female and other)

What: discussion on gender-balance in mathematics

When: 17th of October, 12:30-13:30/14.00

Where: Bernoulliborg room 162

Includes: free lunch, introduction by EWM-NL, discussion session with audience and open question/suggestion round!


12:30-12:35    Walk in with lunch

12:35-12:45    Introduce EWM-NL: our mission, organization and activities

12:45-13:10  Interactive discussion session on gender-balance

13:10-13:25    Open question/suggestion round: what would you like to see changed?

13:25-13:30    Wrap up
