Shanahan 2407 at Harvey Mudd College Claremont, CATitle: Computational Approaches to Optimization Problems in Inhomogeneous Rods and Plates Abstract: In this talk, we will show the experiments of the vibration of plates to generate Chladni's figures and discuss computational approaches to optimization problems of inhomogeneous rods and plates. We consider both optimization of eigenvalues and localization of eigenfunctions. These problems are motivated by physical problems […]
