Abstract : The author spent one half of the Spring 1983 semester at the Institute for Mathematics and its Applications. During that time he interacted with colleagues, engaged in research, and gave two public lectures at the Institute: Chaos in Phase Transitions, and Dynamics of Phase Transitions. The main thrust of his research was in two areas, specifically: Deterministic chaos in materials exhibiting phase transitions, and Admissibility criteria for weak solutions of the non-hyperbolic conservation laws which describe dynamic phase transitions.
