Introduction to Multiscale Problems

Lecturer: 
Course Type: 
PhD Course
Academic Year: 
2021-2022
Period: 
October-January
Duration: 
60 h
Description: 

The aim of this course is an introduction to multiscale problems that can be treated by variational methods, and some of the techniques used and issues that arise commonly in their analysis. After a general introduction to the direct methods of the Calculus of Variations, relaxation and Gamma-convergence, we will examine a series of prototypical problems: homogenization, relaxed Dirichlet problems, theories of thin objects, phase transitions, free-discontinuity problems, Ginzburg-Landau vortices, Young-measure formulations, discrete approximations.
