  1. Selected Articles

In very general terms, my research interests concern problems that arise in continuum mechanics. I am interested in studying physical phenomena that occur due to the presence of small length scales, for example, the structure and dynamics of defects in crystal.

Analysis of theoretical aspects of defects (dislocation, phase boundary, and crack) in crystals using Hamiltonian mechanics (continuum elastodynamics and lattice dynamics) and analytical techniques in applied mathematics.https://journals.sagepub.com/home/mms

Mathematics is a part of physics. Physics is an experimental science, a part of natural science. Mathematics is the part of physics where experiments are cheap. -V. I. Arnold

Genuine mathematicians do not gang up, but the weak need gangs in order to survive. - I. G. Petrovskii (for science in modern times, a relevant quote as recollected by V. I. Arnold)

The only instruction which a teacher can give, in my opinion, is to think in front of his students. - Henri Lebesgue
