Knut: a software package for continuation of periodic solution bifurcations in delay-differential equations.

Research Interests
Contact mechanics: impact and friction; Dynamics of inertial partices in fluid flows; Mechanics of mammalian hearing; nonlinear dynamics; invariant manifolds in picewise-smooth systems; delay-differential equations; machine-tool vibrations;

Current research
I am working on dynamic contact problem, including friction and impact.
