Analysis and Numerical Approximation of an Integro-differential Equation Modeling Non-local Effects in Linear Elasticity

Emmrich, Etienne; Weckner, Olaf

Long-range interactions for linearly elastic media resulting in nonlinear dispersion relations are modeled by an initial-value problem for an integro-differential equation (IDE) that incorporates non-local effects. Interpreting this IDE as an evolutionary equation of second order, well-posedness in L ∞(ℝ) as well as jump relations are proved. Moreover, the construction of the micromodulus function from the dispersion relation is studied. A numerical approximation based upon quadrature is suggested and carried out for two examples, one involving jump discontinuities in the initial data corresponding to a Riemann-like problem.
