Venue: 
INI Seminar Room 1
Abstract: 
Area minimizing surfaces, a solid liquid interphase, the surface across which a strategy must switch in a game have some sort of "optimality" that often reflects in its stability, regularity,propagation properties. In the last few decades, starting with the pioneering work of de Giorgi on minimal surfaces, we have attained considerable understanding of the underlying mechanisms that produce these effects. I will try to provide an overall view of these developments.
