Multivalued Dir-Minimizing Functions
The course will serve as an introduction to the theory of multivalued Dir-minimizing functions, which can be viewed as harmonic functions which attain multiple values at each point.
Aimed at Postgraduate students interested in geometric measure theory and its link with elliptic PDEs, a solid knowledge of functional analysis and Sobolev spaces, acquaintance with variational
methods in PDEs and some basic geometric measure theory are recommended.
Sessions led by Dr Immanuel Ben Porat will take place on
09 May 2023 15:30 - 17:30 C4
