Abstract

This project starts from an eigenvalue problem of Steklov type which models displacement fields occurring during the destabilization of faults in elastic media. We introduce and study in details the functional space V, a generalized solution space for this eigenvalue problem. The original formulation valid for half planes is then extended to problems in disks by conformal mapping.
