INI Seminar Room 2
In this talk, we rst recall how some monotonicity formulas can be derived along the level set ow of the capacitary potential associated with a given bounded domain. A careful analysis is required in order to preserve the monotonicity across the singular times, leading in turn to a new quantitative version of the Willmore inequality. Remarkably, such analysis can be carried out without any a priori knowledge of the size of the singular set. Hence, the same order of ideas applies to the p-capacitary potential of whose critical set, for p 6= 2, is not necessarily negligible. In this context, a generalised version of the Minkowski inequality is deduced.
