Dr Angkana Rüland

Junior Research Fellow


PhD in Mathematics at the University of Bonn (2014)

Academic Background

I studied mathematics with physics as a secondary subject at the Universities of Bonn and Leipzig. In March 2014 I finished my PhD under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Herbert Koch at the University of Bonn. I am now working in the research group of Prof. Dr. John Ball.

Undergraduate Teaching

I am teaching two sets of B5.1 Method of Applied Mathematics classes in MT 14.

Research Interests

My reserach interests include (non-convex) calculus of variations with applications to elasticity and shape-memory alloys, Inverse problems, unique continuation, Carleman estimates, Fractional Schroedinger equations.

Publications include:

Unique Continuation for Fractional Schrödinger Equations with Rough Potential, ArXiv Preprint,

On the Backward Uniqueness Property of the Heat Equation in Two-Dimensional Conical Domains, ArXiv Preprint,

The Cubic-to-Orthorhombic Phase Transition - Rigidity and Non-Rigidity Properties in the Linear Theory of Elasticity, MPI MIS Preprint,

A Rigidity Result for a Reduced Model of a Cubic-to-Orthorhombic Phase Transition in the Geometrically Linear Theory of Elasticity, ArXiv Preprint,

(with Georgy Kitavtsev and Stefan Luckhaus) Surface Energies Arising in Microscopic Modeling of Martensitic Transformations, ArXiv Preprint.
