Special Colloquium

Quantitative Stability in the Calculus of Variations

Robin Neumeyer, Northwestern University

Location:  zoom
Date & time: Monday, 01 February 2021 at 12:00PM - 1:00PM

Abstract: Among all subsets of Euclidean space with a fixed volume, balls have the smallest perimeter. Furthermore, any set with nearly minimal perimeter is geometrically close, in a quantitative sense, to a ball. This latter statement reflects the quantitative stability of balls with respect to the perimeter functional. We will discuss recent advances in quantitative stability and applications in various contexts. The talk includes joint work with several collaborators and will be accessible to a broad research audience.

These talks are for the local Rutgers Math Community only, Zoom links will be sent by the Department Chair via email
