Laboratory of Mechanics of Natural Hazards

Research Topics

  1. Asymptotic methods for equations of mathematical physics and continuum mechanics. General approaches.

    1.1. Semiclassical approximation, geometric asymptotics, and ray expansions.

    1.2. Operator methods and adiabatic approximation.

    1.3. Development of analytical-numerical algorithms based on 1.1 and 1.2 for describing propagating waves and vortices as well as bound states in linear and nonlinear inhomogeneous media.

  2. Asymptotic description of wave and vortex motions in hydrodynamics, magnetohydrodynamics, gas dynamics, and plasma physics.
  3. Asymptotic theory of propagation and run-up on the shore of long oceanic waves and of propagation of mesoscale vortices in atmosphere. Application to the description of phenomena related to nature hazards such as tsunami waves, typhoons and hurricanes, and glacier motion.
  4. Application of asymptotic and operator methods to evolution and stationary problems of quantum mechanics, physics of low-dimensional systems (nanonsystems), statistical physics, and thermodynamics.


asymptotic and operator methods, continuous media, catastrophic events, quantum and statistical mechanics.
