What Makes a Surface "Optimal" : Rothschild Distinguished Visiting Fellow Lecture
Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute
AbstractArea minimizing surfaces, a solid liquid interphase, the surface across which a strategy must switch in a game have some sort of "optimality" that often reflects in its stability, regularity,propagation properties. In the last few decades, starting with the pioneering work of de Giorgi on minimal surfaces, we have attained considerable understanding of the underlying mechanisms that produce these effects. I will try to provide an overall view of these developments.
If it doesn't, something may have gone wrong with our embedded player.
We'll get it fixed as soon as possible.
