Gradient flows with random energies

  • Nicolas Dirr (Cardiff University, Cardiff)
Felix-Klein-Hörsaal Universität Leipzig (Leipzig)

Abstract

We introduce some random energies and associated gradient flows motivated by the evolution of phase boundaries in heterogeneous media. The talk will focus on new effects due to the random nature of the energies and on the interplay of techniques from statistical mechanics and analysis.
