Minisymposium (ID: VPPO)

Variational Problems of Physical Origin

Organizers: Robert Jerrard, University of Toronto, and Andrew Lorent, University of Cincinnati

This minisymposium will be devoted to rigorous mathematical results on problems from the calculus of variations that are motivated by applications to physical models. Physical problems that will be considered are likely to include descriptions of vortices in superconductors and superfluids, as modelled by the Ginzburg-Landau and Gross-Pitaevskii functionals respectively; problems related to nonlinear elasticity, including rigidity in multiwell elasticity and the elastic behaviour of thin films; and behaviour of diblock copolymers and related variational models involving nonlocal perturbations of the perimeter functional.
