Distinguished University Professor
Institute for Physical Science and Technology

Ph.D. in Aeronautics and Engineering Mechanics. University of Minnesota (1965)
 
Research Interests: Professor Antman studies a variety of dynamical and steady-state nonlinear problems for rods, shells, and three-dimensional solid bodies. The goals of these studies are to discover new nonlinear effects, determine thresholds in constitutive equations separating qualitatively different responses, treat control problems involving "smart" materials, examine important kinds of instabilities, contribute to the theory of shocks and dissipative mechanisms in solids, and develop new methods of nonlinear analysis and of effective computation for problems of solid mechanics
