Università degli Studi di Napoli "Federico II", Complesso San Marcellino

The workshop will be held from the 21 to the 23 of February 2024 at Aula G3, ground floor of Complesso Monumentale Santi Marcellino e Festo in Largo San Marcellino 10 (Naples), a wonderful historical building belonging to University of Naples "Federico II" and to Scuola Superiore Meridionale (SSM). For more information on the venue, click here.

Scope of the workshop is to gather young and more expert scholars working on the field of variational methods in applied mathematics. This is a lively research area with a variety of interesting challenges spanning from fundamental modeling issues to rigorous mathematical foundations, at the intersection point among continuum mechanics, calculus of variations, geometric measure theory, partial differential equations, and nonlinear functional analysis. We will also take the occasion to present part of the results of the project STAR PLUS 2020 - Linea 1 "New perspectives in the Variational modeling of Continuum Mechanics'', funded by University of Naples "Federico II" and Compagnia di San Paolo.

Registration is free but mandatory.
