Rigidity and Flexibility in PDEs


The main focus of the research group will be on different types of rigidity properties in PDEs including:

  • nonlocal PDEs with an emphasis on unique continuation problems, regularity theory and applications to inverse and control problems,
  • elliptic and parabolic free boundary problems of obstacle type,
  • non-convex problems in the calculus of variations and in elasticity, in particular motivated by problems arising in the modelling of shape-memory alloys.
