Partial Differential Equations Wave equations with oblique boundary conditions: 

Scalar wave propagation problems with the Dirichlet or Neumann boundary conditions have been extensively studied. The mixed problem for the wave equation with an oblique derivative is illposed. The conditions of normal solvability were found. The exact solutions of initial value problems for wave equation have been constructed. Main publications: Dobrushkin, V.A. (1994). On solvability of mixed problem in a domain with an angle for wave equation. Sib. J. Diff. Equations, 3, No. 2, 3  10 (1994). 

Shock problems:  
The shock phenomena in solid mechanics is simulated as an initialboundary value problem for PDE with discontinuous initial data. A rigorous solution of such problem was obtained and the uniqueness theorem was proved. Main publications: Dobrushkin, V.A., & Gaiduk, S.I. (1979). Solution of a problem in the theory of thermoelasticity related to mechanical and thermal shocks. English transl. in Differential equations, 15, 1165  1174; Dobrushkin, V.A. (1977). The uniqueness of the generalized solution of a certain problem in shock theory. English transl. in Differential Equations, 13 , 1061  1063. 

Resolvent method in abstract differentialoperator equations and elastodynamics:  
A new method for solving linear boundary value problems for abstract operator differential equations was developed, a variant of the boundary element method. The main advantage of the new method in comparison with this technique is the reduction of singularities. Main publication: Dobrushkin, V.A. (1983). A general boundary value problem for an abstract differentialoperator equation, Dokl. Akad. Nauk BSSR, 27, 776  779 (in Russian; English summary). The dynamic problems of elasticity for domains with nondifferentiable boundaries pose special difficulties since the standard methods cannot be used reliably for the analysis of wave effects in these geometries. In these domains the effects of wave reflection and diffraction are strongly influenced by the irregular boundary. The solutions of several mixed problems in the dynamic theory of elasticity for the wedgeshaped domains with the coupled boundary conditions (when elastic potentials are not separated) were established. The necessary algorithms for the approximate calculation of these solution have been developed. Main publications: Dobrushkin, V.A. (1988). The boundary value problems in the dynamic theory of elasticity for the wedgeshaped domains. Minsk: Nauka I Technika (in Russian, monograph); Dobrushkin, V.A. (1984). The second boundary value problem of the plane theory of elasticity for a wedge. Dokl. Akad. Nauk SSSR, 1984, 279, No. 11 77 79 (in Russian; English transl. in Soviet Phys. Dokl. 1984, 29, No. 11, 905  907)., 1061  1063. 

Numerical Methods


The appropriate numerical procedure to approximate the value of the continual integral with respect to several measures was developed. Main publication: Dobrushkin, V.A., & Likhoded, N.A. (1982). Approximate calculation of a continual integral with respect to a Cauchy measure with a weight in Hilbert space, 1982, No. 1, 104  106 (in Russian; English summary). 

Approximate evaluation of hypersingular integrals:  
A new method of regularization and approximate calculation of hypersingular integrals and integrodifferential expressions with singularities was proposed. The estimates of quadrature errors were obtained. Main publications: Dobrushkin, V.A. (1992). Regularization in Marchaud form and approximate calculation of a class of integro differential expressions. Izvestiya vuzov. Matematika, 1992, No. 9, .38  41 (in Russian; English transl. in Russian Mathematics. Izvest. VUZ, Matematika, 1992, No. 9, 34  37); Dobrushkin, V.A. (1993).
