Seminario: “Minimizers for energies related to dislocations”

Mercoledì 6 Febbraio 2019, ore 10:00 - Aula 1BC45 - Joan Verdera


Mercoledì 6 Febbraio 2019 alle ore 10:00 in Aula 1BC45, Joan Verdera (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona) terrà un seminario dal titolo “Minimizers for energies related to dislocations”.

Dislocation Theory provides an energy on a planar unit mass distribution that contains a logarithmic term and an anisotropic term. Minimizers turn out to be unique (under certain assumptions) and compactly supported. The point of the talk is to explain how one can compute explicitely these minimizers in some cases. Singular integrals and the Plemelj jump formula play a role.
