Welcome to the homepage of the workshop Calculus of Variations on Schiermonnikoog, which will be held on the island of Schiemonnikoog in the Netherlands from July 1 to July 5, 2019.
The aim of this workshop is to bring together experts and early career researchers to discuss recent progress on foundations and applications of the modern calculus of variations, and to encourage collaborations. Topics include
analysis of variational multiscale problems
(relaxation, (stochastic) homogenization, thin structures,…)
new approaches to evolutionary problems and PDEs via variational methods
(quasistatic evolution, gradient flows, …)
applications of variational modeling
(continuum mechanics, materials science, biology, …)
