Title: Microstructure in Shape-Memory Alloys: Rigidity,Flexibility and Some Numerical Simulations

Abstract: In this talk I will discuss a striking dichotomy whichoccurs in the mathematical analysis of microstructures in shape-memory alloys:On the one hand, some models for these materials display a very rigid structurewith only very specific microstructures, if one assumes that surface energiesare penalised. On the other hand, without this penalisation, for the samemodels a plethora of very ``wild'' solutions exists.
