Spectral minimal partitions

Mathematical Physics & Probability

Speaker: Thomas Hoffmann-Ostenhof, University of Vienna
Location: 2112 MSB
Start time: Wed, May 22 2013, 4:00PM

Spectral minimal partitions are related to nodal domains. They have many interesting properties. There are close relations to Courant's nodal theorem. In terms of spectral minimal partitions the case of equality for this theorem can be characterized. In this talk joint work with Bernard Helffer, Susanna Terracini and Virginie Bonnaillie-Noel will be described.
