Dynamics and Analysis of some Degenerate 4th order PDEs related to crystal evolution

Dynamics and Analysis of some Degenerate 4th order PDEs related to crystal evolution

Series: Mathematics Colloquium
Location: Math 501
Presenter: Jeremy Louis Marzuola, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

We will discuss the derivation and analysis of a family of 4th order nonlinear PDEs that arise in the study of the evolution of crystal surfaces due to thermodynamic fluctuations. This will include discussions of joint work with Jon Weare, Jianfeng Lu, Dio Margetis, Jian-Guo Liu and Anya Katsevich.
