UE Congestion phenomena and Compressibility for Granular media

Degrees incorporating this pedagocial element :


Granular flows are at the heart of phenomena such as erosion, landslides and vulcanology. The mathematical study of these complex events is an important numerical and physical challenge. We will show how it requires a general view related to nonlinear PDEs. The objective of this course will be two-fold:

The main idea of this lecture is to motivate by examples interdisciplinary collaborations needed to deal with complex situations.
