 Title: Cahn-Hilliard equation and Willmore surfaces

Abstract: There are many results in the literature concerning the relation between the Allen-Cahn equation and minimal surfaces. In this talk I will present some analogue results for the Cahn-Hilliard equation, that is a fourth order PDE which is related to the Willmore energy through some Gamma-convergence results. I will present results in dimension 2 and 3, concerning the construction of solutions, and I will briefly discuss some qualitative properties.

  •  5 pm. Mauricio Romo (Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, USA)

Title: Derived Categories, gauge theories and analytic continuation

Abstarct: In this talk I will introduce the concept of Gauged Linear Sigma Model (GLSM), a class of quantum field theories, in mathematical terms. I will show how the GLSM can be used to conjecture derived equivalences (of categories such as coherent sheaves on projective spaces and a matrix factorizations) and how this translates into analytic properties of physical quantities.
