    • Numerical approximation of a one-dimensional elliptic optimal design problem 

      Casado-Diaz J.; Castro C.; Luna-Laynez M.; Zuazua E. (Multiscale Modeling and Simulation, 2011-12-31)
      We address the numerical approximation by finite-element methods of an optimal design problem for a two phase material in one space dimension. This problem, in the continuous setting, due to high frequency oscillations, ...
    • Optimal location of controllers for the one-dimensional wave equation 

      Privat Y.; Trélat E.; Zuazua E. (Annales de l'Institut Henri Poincare (C) Analyse Non Lineaire, 2013-12-31)
      In this paper, we consider the homogeneous one-dimensional wave equation defined on (0,π). For every subset ωâŠ[0,π] of positive measure, every T≥2π, and all initial data, there exists a unique control of minimal norm in ...
    • Quasiconvex envelopes of energies for nematic elastomers in the small strain regime and applications 

      Cesana P.; Desimone A. (Journal of the Mechanics and Physics of Solids, 2011-12-31)
      We provide some explicit formulas for the quasiconvex envelope of energy densities for nematic elastomers in the small strain regime and plane strain conditions. We then demonstrate their use as a powerful tool for the ...
