Antman joins ISR as affiliate faculty memberProfessor Stuart Antman (Math) was recently named an ISR affiliate faculty member. His research involves concrete problems for general classes of constitutive equations. These include problems on the interaction of fluids with deformable solids, the nature of dissipative mechanisms and shock waves in inelastic solids, asymptotics of the large motions of light flexible structures with heavy attachments, and global bifurcation for nonlinearly elastic and elastoplastic structures. A number of his current research projects involve magnetostrictive materials. He is affiliated with the Center for Dynamics and Control of Smart Structures.
