Geometric Variational Problem

SIR Grant number: RBSI14RVEZ

The study of geometric variational problems is one of the oldest and most fascinating topics in the Calculus of Variations. Solutions of geometric variational problems describe equilibrium configurations of physical systems or provide preferred representatives in homology and homotopy classes. Their study is then of fundamental importance both in applications and in pure Mathematics.
This project is intended to significantly improve our knowledge on geometric variational problems by addressing a series of old and new questions, whose answer will require either to develop new techniques and ideas, or to devise a new approach on known methods
