Plates with incompatible prestrain and non-euclidean elasticity
Diego Ricciotti

CMC 109

Abstract

We examine a model (coming from non-Euclidean elasticity) for thin plates that become internally prestrained in the absence of external forces or imposed boundary conditions. Examples of this phenomena occur in nature for instance in growing leaves or tissues. We describe a derivation of a 2D model arising as \(\Gamma\)-limit of a 3D model as the thickness parameter approaches zero, under appropriate scalings of the energy in terms of the plate's thickness.

Sub-Riemannian Geometry and Partial Differential Equations

Abstract

We examine properties of solutions to the eikonal and infinite Laplace equations in sub-Riemannian spaces. The interplay between the underlying geometry and these solutions will also be explored.
