Dear Colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention to the summer school GEOMETRICAL MODELISATION IN SOLID MECHANICS organized by the GDR Géométrie Differentielle et Mécanique and Centre Henri Lebesgue which will be held in Piriac-sur-Mer (Brittany, France).
This research school is organized from Monday 8th to Friday 12th of June 2020 with 4 lectures of 8h :
Lecture 1 by Peter Olver :  Ttitle Symmetry, conservation laws, and moving frames
Keyword Lie group, group action, infinitesimal generator, Lie algebra, prolongation, partial differential equation, calculus of variations, Euler–Lagrange equations, conservation law, Noether’s Theorem, elasticity, differential invariant, moving frame, signature, invariant curve and surface flows

Lecture 2 by Arash Yavari : Title Geometric Nonlinear Elasticity and Anelasticity
Keyword Nonlinear elasticity, dislocations, disclinations, point defects, growth mechanics, accretion, material manifold, residual stress, moving frames, Bilby-Kroner-Lee decomposition

Lecture 3 by Patrizio Neff :
Title  Scales in solids
Keyword Microstructured continua, micromorphic continua, Cosserat model, Cauchy model (Piola, Green-Lagrange strains), second gradient models, Mindlin-Eringen model, lattices.

Lecture 4 by Patrick Verovic : Titre Finsler geometry for mechanics
Keyword Generalized metrics, generalized Lagrangian, Finsler geometry, fracture, cavitation, phase fields.
You are kindly requested to register for the school before March 12th, 2020

Registration form and additional informations are available at

The conference fee covering local expenses is 400 Euros. This includes 

  1. Lodging at VVF Piriac-sur-mer during the school
