    Eigenvalue problem of the 1-Laplace operator.

    The eigenvalue problem of the $p$-Laplace operator is extensively
    studied for $p>1$. We are interested in the highly degenerated limit
    case $p=1$ where some new phenomena can be observed. First, the
    formal eigenvalue equation is not well defined and one has to
    clarify what an eigensolution of the $1$-Laplace operator should be.
    Then the existence of a sequence of eigensolutions can be shown.
    Since the corresponding eigenvalue equation has too many solutions,
    a further equation satisfied by eigensolutions is derived.

    Evolution by curvature of a triod in the plane (Joint work with
    Matteo Novaga and Annibale Magni).

    We consider the motion by curvature of a network of three smooth
    embedded curves in a convex subset of the plane, connected through a
    triple junction (a triod) and with fixed endpoints on the boundary.
    Such a flow represents the evolution of a two-dimensional 3-phase
    system where the energy is simply the sum of the lengths of the
    interfaces, moreover, this is the simplest example of curvature flow
    of a set which is ``essentially'' non regular. We prove that the
    flow exists smooth until the lengths of the three curves stay far
    from zero. If this is the case for all times, then the network
    converges to the Steiner minimal connection between the three
    endpoints. Finally, we discuss some other recent results and the
    possible generalizations to higher dimensions.
