Fares Essebei - PhD in Mathematics
In the framework of Carnot-Carathéodoryy spaces, we show a variational approximation, by means of Γ−convergence, of the functional studied by Modica and Mortola. In order to give a proof of the latter, we introduce definitions and important results about functions of bounded variation, perimeters, Minkowski content and coarea formulas.
The seminar corresponds to the final exam of Geometric Measure Theory, a planned course within Essebei's first year PHD study programme
