The Colloquium of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics
The next meeting of the Colloquium of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics will take place on Wednesday, April 27th, at 4.15 pm in the Auditorium CK112.
The speaker will be Professor Xiao Zhong (University of Jyväskylä) and the title of thetalk is: "On the Euler-Lagrange equation of a functional by Pólya and Szegö".
I will talk about a conjecture of Pólya and Szegö on minimal electrostatic capacity sets in convex shape optimization. The functional, associated to the conjecture, involves capacity and perimeter. We will focus on the regularity properties of generalized solutions of the corresponding Euler-Lagrange equation. This is joint work with Nicola Fusco.
As usual, pizza and refreshments will be served after the talk ... and please remember that the director of the department wants everybody to be present :)
Ilkka Holopainen, Czar of the Colloquium
