### Friction in Mechanics: Mathematics and Simulation

In this project, which is conducted in cooperation with the Department
of Mathematics at Linköping University, unilateral contact with
Coulomb friction is studied. The project is primarily oriented towards the
investigation and understanding of frictional instability phenomena.
The aim is both to obtain relevant mathematical results and to perform
numerical simulations of such phenomena.
