Dissipative port-Hamiltonian systems are an important class of models that arise in all areas of science and engineering, whenever one uses energy as the major modeling concept. Despite the fact that the model class looks very unstructured at first sight, it has remarkable algebraic and geometric properties. Systems can be coupled in a network fashion in a structure preserving way, Galerkin projection preserves the stucture. We will illustrate these and further system properties, showing for examples that stability and passivity are automatic. In the linear case Jordan structures for purely imaginary eigenvalues, eigenvalues at infinity, and even singular blocks in the Kronecker canonical form are very restricted and furthermore the structure leads to fast and efficient iterative solution methods for the associated linear systems. Motivated from an industrial application of studying brake squeal, we study questions like the spectral properties or distance to instability/stability for this system class. We use this large scale industrial finite element model to illustrate our theoretical findings with numerical computation results.

Minimizers for the thin one-phase free boundary problem
* Wednesday 29 January 2020,   12:15,   M3 (M234)
We will give an overview of the literature on the non-negative minimizers for the one-phase free boundary problem of Alt and Caffarelli. This functional contains two competing terms, the standard Dirichlet energy and the measure of the set where the function is positive. Every minimizer is harmonic in its positive phase and vanishes elsewhere. Many questions arise regarding the regularity of the free boundary of such a minimizer, some of them still open. We will also discuss how these ideas can be brought to the thin one-phase free boundary problem, where the first term is a weighted Dirichlet energy related to the Poisson extension used to compute the fractional Laplacian, and the second competing term is only evaluated in a hyperplane. Minimizers of such a functional will have vanishing fractional Laplacian in the hyperplane's positive phase. This intrinsic nonlocallity will make some arguments to vary substantially.
