Research Thesis Topic
Stability and Instability in Seismic Waves
This project is focused on numerical and analytical analysis of partial differential equations modelling seismic and elastic waves. A popular model of such waves is the Nikolaevskiy equation. So far, interest to the equation was largely due to its capacity to generate self-excited structures, for example rolls. However, as was argued recently, solid matrix formed by rocks is an essentially passive system, therefore only decaying behaviour should have physical sense. We will thoroughly investigate this type of dynamics and also explore if the self-excited structures may still be formed provided the system is added up by external or internal energy-generating factors. This project has both theoretical and practical engineering aspects.
