The main theme of the meeting was the formation of geometrical singularities in PDE problems with a variational formulation. These equations typically arise in some applications (to physics, engineering, or biology, for example) and their resolution often requires a combination of methods coming from areas such as functional and harmonic analysis, differential geometry and geometric measure theory. Among the PDE problems discussed were: the CahnHilliard model of phase transitions and domain walls; vortices in GinzburgLandau type models for superconductivity and superfluidity; the OhnaKawasaki model for diblock copolymers; models of image enhancement; and MongeAmpère functions. The articles give a sampling of problems and methods in this diverse area of mathematics, which touches a large part of modern mathematics and its applications. Titles in this series are copublished with the Centre de Recherches Mathématiques. Readership Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in PDEs and calculus of variation.
