Abstract

This paper is concerned with the general formulation of linear problems in rod elastostatics, and with the identification of their common formal and structural features, valid for every kinematical hypothesis. The generalized variables (section forces and generalized deformations) [...]

Abstract

This paper investigates the variational formulation and numerical implementation of the damage evolution in solids using the discrete approach of the embedded discontinuity formulation. For this purpose, the ''kinematically optimal symmetric formulation'' (KOS) [...]

Abstract

In this work we present a theory of the multilayer perceptron from the perspective of functional analysis and variational calculus. Within this formulation, the learning problem for the [...]
