Glimpses from the Dark Side of the Calculus of Variations


Giuseppe (Rosario) Mingione
Università degli Studi di Parma, Italy
Mon 26 Mar 2012 2-3pm, Carslaw Room 829 (AGR)


Vectorial variational problems very often exhibit singularities, that is, their solutions are not regular, although data—integrands, coefficients, equations—are smooth. This dark aspect invites us to study the structure of the so-called singular sets: points where solutions become discontinuous, unbounded etc. I will present a few results in this direction, trying to take the audience to the Dark Side.
