|Title:||Finite time singularities of inhomogeneous elasticity|
|Seminar:||CCMA Luncheon Seminar|
|Speaker:||Tao Huang, Penn State University|
|We study the formation of finite time singularities in the form of super norm blowup for a spatially hyperbolic system modeling inhomogeneous elasticity, which is related to the variational wave equations. The system possesses a unique $C^1$ solution before the emergence of vacuum in finite time, for given initial data that are smooth enough, bounded and uniformly away from vacuum. At the occurrence of blowup, the density becomes zero, while the momentum stays finite, however the velocity and the density of the energy are both infinite.|
