-Titolo
Partizioni ottimali e problemi ellittici con forte competizione

-Conferenziere
Susanna Terracini (Universita' di Milano Bicocca)

-Abstract
Ci interessiamo il problema di frontiera libera associato al problema di partizione ottima relativo agli autovalori lineari o nonlineari. Tratteremo delle condizioni di estremalita' e della regolarita' dell'insieme nodale, anche in relazione all'analogo problema per l'insieme nodale delle autofunzioni. Vedremo inoltre il legame con teoremi di tipo Liouville per sistemi in competizione.

-Breve curriculum
Susanna Terracini obtained her PhD degree at SISSA (Trieste) in 1990. From 1992 to 2001 has been associate professor of Mathematical Analysis. She is full Professor at the University of Milano Bicocca since 2001. Her research interests include different directions in the field of nonlinear analysis with application to the variational approach to chaotic and complex trajectories in Hamiltonian dynamical systems, specially in celestial mechanics and pattern formation mechanisms for nonlinear reaction diffusion and Schrodinger systems. She is the author of about 80 papers, published on the major international mathematical journals. Terracini has act as a referee for a number of international journals. Moreover she has been invited to speak in many Italian and foreign Universities such as Paris VI and IX, the Paris Astronomic Observatory, the Courant Institute in New York, Winsconsin University at Madison, Rutgers University, USC, San Diego, CMAF in Lisbon and EPF in Lausanne. She was invited as plenary speaker in many international conferences and notably to the Equadiff2003 meeting and to the Jean Leray Centennial Conference, in 2006. She was awarded with the C. Vinti prize in 2003 and the B. Finzi prize in 2007.
