We consider first a discrete model (a gravitropic spring-pendulum system) and then a continuous rod model which is analyzed both analytically (under the assumption of small deformations) and numerically (in the large deformation regime). We find that, for a choice of material parameters consistent with values reported in the available literature on plant shoots, rods of sufficient length may exhibit lateral oscillations of increasing amplitude, which eventually converge to limit cycles. This behavior strongly suggests the occurrence of a Hopf bifurcation, just as for the gravitropic spring-pendulum system, for which this result is rigorously established. At least in this restricted set of material parameters, our analysis supports a view of Darwin’s circumnutations as a biological analogue to structural systems exhibiting flutter instabilities, i.e., spontaneous oscillations away from equilibrium configurations driven by non-conservative loads. Here, in the context of nutation movements of growing plant shoots, the energy needed to sustain oscillations is continuously supplied to the system by the internal biochemical machinery presiding the capability of plants to maintain a vertical pose.

It is shown that modulated lump solutions emerge from the dispersive shock waves. For the description of dispersive shock waves, Whitham modulation equations for KP are obtained. It is shown that the modulation equations near the soliton line are hyperbolic for the KPII equation while they are elliptic for the KPI equation leading to a focusing effect and the formation of lumps. Such a behaviour is similar to the appearance of breathers for the focusing nonlinear Schrödinger equation in the semiclassical limit.

In finite element and boundary element isogeometric methods (FE-IGA and IGA-BEM), the NURBS basis functions that de- scribe the geometry define also the approximation spaces. In the FE-IGA approach, the surfaces generated by the CAGD tools need to be extended to volumetric descriptions, a major open problem in 3D. This additional passage can be avoided in principle when the partial differential equations to be solved admit a formulation in terms of bound- ary integral equations, leading to Boundary Element Isogeometric Analysis (IGA-BEM). The main advantages of such an approach are given by the dimensionality reduction of the problem (from volumetric-based to surface-based), by the fact that the interface with CAGD tools is direct, and by the possibility to treat exterior problems, where the computational domain is infinite. By contrast, these methods produce system matrices which are full, and require the integration of singular kernels. In this paper we address the second point and propose a nonsingular formulation of IGA-BEM for 3D Stokes flows, whose convergence is carefully tested numerically. Standard Gaussian quadrature rules suffice to integrate the boundary integral equations, and carefully chosen known exact solutions of the interior Stokes problem are used to correct the resulting matrices, extending the work by Klaseboer et al.

Conversely, we find a family of new Dirac operators on the noncommutative tori, which arise from the base-space Dirac operator and a suitable connection.10aQuantum principal bundles1 aDabrowski, Ludwik1 aSitarz, Andrzej uhttp://hdl.handle.net/1963/738401020nas a2200145 4500008004100000020001500041245007100056210006500127520044300192653007200635100001900707700002500726700002200751856010100773 2013 en d a887642472400aThe nonlinear multidomain model: a new formal asymptotic analysis.0 anonlinear multidomain model a new formal asymptotic analysis3 aWe study the asymptotic analysis of a singularly perturbed weakly parabolic system of m- equations of anisotropic reaction-diffusion type. Our main result formally shows that solutions to the system approximate a geometric motion of a hypersurface by anisotropic mean curvature. The anisotropy, supposed to be uniformly convex, is explicit and turns out to be the dual of the star-shaped combination of the m original anisotropies.

For Hamiltonian or reversible nonlinearities the solutions are linearly stable. The proofs are based on a combination of di erent ideas and techniques: (i) a Nash-Moser iterative scheme in Sobolev scales. (ii) A regularization procedure, which conjugates the linearized operator to a di erential operator with constant coe cients plus a bounded remainder. These transformations are obtained by changes of variables induced by di eomorphisms of the torus and pseudo-di erential operators. (iii) A reducibility KAM scheme, which completes the reduction to constant coe cients of the linearized operator, providing a sharp asymptotic expansion of the perturbed eigenvalues.10aKAM for PDEs1 aBaldi, P1 aBerti, Massimiliano1 aMontalto, Riccardo uhttps://www.math.sissa.it/publication/note-kam-theory-quasi-linear-and-fully-nonlinear-forced-kdv00784nas a2200109 4500008004100000245008400041210006900125520032000194100002500514700002300539856011200562 2013 eng d00aA note on non-homogeneous hyperbolic operators with low-regularity coefficients0 anote on nonhomogeneous hyperbolic operators with lowregularity c3 aIn this paper we obtain an energy estimate for a complete strictly hyperbolic operator with second order coefficients satisfying a log-Zygmund-continuity condition with respect to $t$, uniformly with respect to $x$, and a log-Lipschitz-continuity condition with respect to $x$, uniformly with respect to $t$.

To this aim, we introduce an alternative nonresonance condition with respect to the second eigenvalue which, in the scalar case, generalizes the classical one, in the spirit of Fonda et al. (1991) [2]. Our approach also applies for nonlinearities which do not necessarily satisfy a subcritical growth assumption.

An explicit formula for the relative determinant of two conformally related metrics was computed by Branson in Branson (1996). A similar formula holds for Cheeger's half-torsion, which plays a role in self-dual field theory (see Juhl, 2009), and is defined in terms of regularized determinants of the Hodge laplacian on $p$-forms ($p < n/2$). In this article we show that the corresponding actions are unbounded (above and below) on any conformal four-manifold. We also show that the conformal class of the round sphere admits a second solution which is not given by the pull-back of the round metric by a conformal map, thus violating uniqueness up to gauge equivalence. These results differ from the properties of the determinant of the conformal Laplacian established in Chang and Yang (1995), Branson, Chang, and Yang (1992), and Gursky (1997). We also study entire solutions of the Euler-Lagrange equation of $\log \det P$ and the half-torsion $\tau_h$ on $\mathbb{R}^4 \setminus {0}$, and show the existence of two families of periodic solutions. One of these families includes Delaunay-type solutions.1 aGursky, Matthew1 aMalchiodi, Andrea uhttp://hdl.handle.net/1963/655901861nas a2200145 4500008004100000245007600041210006900117260001300186520138500199653002701584100002001611700002101631700002701652856003601679 2012 en d00aNumerical modelling of installation effects for diaphragm walls in sand0 aNumerical modelling of installation effects for diaphragm walls bSpringer3 aThe scopes of this work are to study the mechanisms of load transfer and the deformations of the ground during slurry trenching and concreting in dry sand and to evaluate their effects on service structural loads, wall deflections and ground displacements behind the wall caused by subsequent excavation. A series of three-dimensional finite element analyses was carried out modelling the installation of diaphragm walls consisting of panels of different length. The soil was modelled as either linearly elastic-perfectly plastic or incrementally non-linear (hypoplastic) with elastic strain range. Plane strain analyses of diaphragm walls of identical cross section were also carried out in which wall installation was either modelled or the wall was wished in place (WIP). The analyses predict ground movements consistent with the experimental observations both in magnitude and trend. The results also show that the maximum horizontal wall deflections and structural loads reduce with increasing panel aspect ratio towards a minimum which is about twice the value computed for WIP analyses. Panel aspect ratios should be larger than about three to take advantage of the three-dimensional effects. The pattern and magnitude of surface vertical displacements obtained from linearly elastic-perfectly plastic analyses, no matter whether three- or two-dimensional, are unrealistic.10aConstitutive relations1 aConti, Riccardo1 ade Sanctis, Luca1 aViggiani, Giulia, M.B. uhttp://hdl.handle.net/1963/693400918nas a2200133 4500008004100000245011000041210006900151260001300220520035800233653003100591100001800622700002100640856012300661 2012 en d00aNumerical study of the small dispersion limit of the Korteweg-de Vries equation and asymptotic solutions0 aNumerical study of the small dispersion limit of the Kortewegde bElsevier3 aWe study numerically the small dispersion limit for the Korteweg-de Vries (KdV) equation $u_t+6uu_x+\epsilon^{2}u_{xxx}=0$ for $\epsilon\ll1$ and give a quantitative comparison of the numerical solution with various asymptotic formulae for small $\epsilon$ in the whole $(x,t)$-plane.

Dubrovin, Comm. Math. Phys., 267 (2006), pp. 117–139] on the formation of dispersive shocks in a class of Hamiltonian dispersive regularizations of the quasi-linear transport equation. The regularizations are characterized by two arbitrary functions of one variable, where the condition of integrability implies that one of these functions must not vanish. It is shown numerically for a large class of equations that the local behavior of their solution near the point of gradient catastrophe for the transport equation is described by a special solution of a Painlevé-type equation. This local description holds also for solutions to equations where blowup can occur in finite time. Furthermore, it is shown that a solution of the dispersive equations away from the point of gradient catastrophe is approximated by a solution of the transport equation with the same initial data, modulo terms of order $\\\\epsilon^2$, where $\\\\epsilon^2$ is the small dispersion parameter.

We show numerically that the resulting multiscale solution approximates the KdV solution, in the small dispersion limit, to the order $\\\\epsilon^{2/3}$.1 aGrava, Tamara1 aKlein, Christian uhttp://hdl.handle.net/1963/259200894nas a2200109 4500008004300000245005300043210005300096520056000149100001800709700002100727856003600748 2007 en_Ud 00aNearly time optimal stabilizing patchy feedbacks0 aNearly time optimal stabilizing patchy feedbacks3 aWe consider the time optimal stabilization problem for a nonlinear control system $\\\\dot x=f(x,u)$.

The model is based on the balance between released energy and dissipation, and it describes the stick-slip behavior of drops on a rough surface using ideas similar to those employed in dry friction, elasto-plasticity and fracture mechanics. The main results of our analysis are formulas giving the interval of stable contact angles as a function of the surface roughness. These formulas show that the difference between advancing and receding angles is much larger for a drop in complete contact with the substrate (Wenzel drop) than for one whose cavities are filled with air (Cassie-Baxter drop). This fact is used as the key tool to interpret the experimental evidence.1 aDeSimone, Antonio1 aGruenewald, Natalie1 aOtto, Felix uhttp://hdl.handle.net/1963/184801143nas a2200121 4500008004100000245005700041210005700098260001000155520076800165653002800933100002400961856003600985 2007 en d00aNoncommutative geometry and quantum group symmetries0 aNoncommutative geometry and quantum group symmetries bSISSA3 aIt is a widespread belief that mathematics originates from the desire to understand (and eventually to formalize) some aspects of the real world.
