Characteristic classes of complexified bundles
(Summer School in Algebraic Topology: Sheaf theoretic methods in the theory of characteristic classes, 2007)
We examine the topological characteristic cohomology classes of complexified vector bundles . In particular, all the classes coming from real vector bundles are computed. We use characteristic classes with the ax-ioms of ...
Generalized Moonshine and orbifold constructions.
(Research Institute for Mathematical Sciences (Kokyuroku), 2002)
A brief review is given of some of our recent work on Generalised Monstrous Moonshine using abelian orbifoldings of the Moonshine Module.
Finite-amplitude Love waves in a pre-stressed neo-Hookean material
In the context of the non-linear elasticity theory we consider a model for compressible solids called compressible neoHookean material . We show how (exact) finite-amplitude inhomogeneous plane wave solutions and ...
Waves and vibrations in a solid of second grade
(World Scientific, 2006)
We study the viscoelastic second grade solid, for which the constitutive equation consists in the sum of a purely elastic part and a viscoelastic part; this latter part is specified by two microstructural coefficients ...
A note about waves in dissipative and dispersive solids
(World Scientific, 2008)
We study shear waves propagating in a special viscoelastic model proposed first by Fosdick and Yu in 1996. We deduce an asymptotic approximation which reduces the full balance equations to a system of evolution equations ...
