We start by treating initial-boundary value problems of linear elasticity, and indicate the existence of wave operators. The main part of the lecture is concerned with linear thermoelasticity. We solve initial-boundary value problems, give some asymptotic expansions as \(t\to \infty\), and especially describe the asymptotic behaviour of solutions of the free-space problem. Finally, we deal with some nonlinear questions. We are particularly interested in obtaining solutions global in t for small smooth data.
