PDE Seminar: Chaudhuri -- On derivation of Euler-Lagrange equations for incompressible energy-minimizers

Nirmalendu Chaudhuri, University of Wollongong

2pm-3pm, Friday 15th August, Room 707A  

Abstract: In this talk we will discuss the local integrability of distributions q
satisfying the system of equations $ Dq=div f $ for some matrix field $ f=(f^i_j) $, for
which $ f^i_j$ are in the local Hardy space $ h1 $.  As a consequence, we will discuss
the existence and the local representation of the hydrostatic pressure and the
derivation of Euler-Lagrange equations associated with volume-preserving, elastic
energy-minimizing vector fields in $R^n$.  (Joint work with Aram Karakhanyan)
