Shape Optimization and Isoperimetric and Functional Inequalities

23-27 September, 2019
Versione stampabile


The school will be held in the conference hall of the Bellavista Relax Hotel in Levico Terme (Trento).
Participants will be lodged in the same hotel.


The main purpose of the workshop is to bring together specialists working on various topics involving geometric inequalities, isoperimetric and functional inequalities, partial differential equations on variable domains, with particular attention to the dependence of the solutions of the state equations (generally partial differential equations) on the  geometry of their domain of definition. Precisely, we will involve specialists on the following topics:

  • shape optimization problems
  • isoperimetric and functional inequalities
  • free boundary problems
  • spectral optimization problems
  • convex geometric tools and geometric inequalities
  • free boundary regularity of optimal shapes
  • numerical aspects of singular shapes
  • geometric flows and PDE's
