The Activity Group on Mathematical Aspects of Continuum Mechanics fosters activity at the interface between mathematics and engineering, our interests are the following:

  1. organization of minisymposia related to materials science at JSIAM's annual meetings
  2. organization of two workshops CoMFoS and Kimura workshop roughly every year
    CoMFoS: theoretical research on continuum mechanics from engineering view.
    Kimura workshop: variational method and related topics on continuum mechanics.
  3. Japanese manual of Freefem++, FreeFem++ is the project by O.Pironneau and F.Hecht in J.L.Lions Lab. of Pierre and Marie Curie University, Paris.
CoMFoS is the previous name of our activity group in JSIAM, that is, the abbreviation of Continuum Mechanics Focusing on Singularity.
