We start with the existence of “weak solution” with very little regularity, and proceed to establish the smoothness of surfaces that minimize area and the surfaces where phase transition take place. We shall emphasize the common features of these two different problems.poster for Rado Lecture series Smith Lab Room 1005 Department of Mathematics math@osu.edu America/New_York public
Description

Title: Minimal Surfaces and Free Boundary Problems

Speaker: Luis Caffarelli, University of Texas at Austin

Abstract: In this talk I will address the connection between the regularity theory of minimal surfaces and the regularity theory of free boundary problems. We start with the existence of “weak solution” with very little regularity, and proceed to establish the smoothness of surfaces that minimize area and the surfaces where phase transition take place. We shall emphasize the common features of these two different problems.
