CIRM, Luminy, France

This Research School intends to present to young researchers the state of the art in shape optimization and its links with spectral geometry and calculus of variations. This is a very modern topic, with many open questions, which has numerous academic applications, as well as industrial ones.

In order to allow every participant to get the best benefit from this School, we will organize four series of lectures of 5 hours each on: shape optimization, spectral geometry, geometric and isoperimetric inequalities, numerical aspects of these questions. Besides these lectures, some “working sessions” will be planned, during which young researchers will be able to present their problem sand interact with the audience. The participants will also have the occasion to discuss and ask questions to the lecturers and organizers during specific office hours.

Organizers: Dorin Bucur, Ilaria Fragalà, Antoine Henrot.

Speakers: Almut Burchard, Bruno Colbois, Charles Dapogny, Pedro Freitas, Jimmy Lamboley, Edouard Oudet.
