Babuska Problem in Composite Materials and Its Applications
A/Prof. Hai-Gang Li

In high-contrast composite materials, the stress concentration is a common phenomenon when inclusions are close to touch. It always causes damage initiation. This problem was proposed mathematically by Ivo Babuska, concerning the system of linear elasticity, modeled by a class of second order elliptic systems of divergence form with discontinuous coefficients.  I will first review some of our results on upper bound estimates by developing an iteration technique with respect to the energy integral to overcome the difficulty from the lack of maximal principle for elliptic systems. We real the relationship between the blow-up rate, the dimension, and the relative convexity. Finally, I will present two very recent results of myself on lower bound estimates and asymptotics of the gradients to show the optimality of the blow-up rates.
