Gradient flows : in metric spaces and in the space of probability measures by Luigi Ambrosio( Book )

54 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and German and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is devoted to a theory of gradient flows in spaces which are not necessarily endowed with a natural linear or differentiable structure. It consists of two parts, the first one concerning gradient flows in metric spaces and the second one devoted to gradient flows in the space of probability measures on a separable Hilbert space, endowed with the Kantorovich-Rubinstein-Wasserstein distance."--Jacket
Mathematical aspects of evolving interfaces : lectures given at the C.I.M.-C.I.M.E. joint Euro-summer school held in Madeira, Funchal, Portugal, July 3-9, 2000 by Luigi Ambrosio( Book )

23 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Interfaces are geometrical objects modelling free or moving boundaries and arise in a wide range of phase change problems in physical and biological sciences, particularly in material technology and in dynamics of patterns. Especially in the end of last century, the study of evolving interfaces in a number of applied fields becomes increasingly important, so that the possibility of describing their dynamics through suitable mathematical models became one of the most challenging and interdisciplinary problems in applied mathematics. The 2000 Madeira school reported on mathematical advances in some theoretical, modelling and numerical issues concerned with dynamics of interfaces and free boundaries. Specifically, the five courses dealt with an assessment of recent results on the optimal transportation problem, the numerical approximation of moving fronts evolving by mean curvature, the dynamics of patterns and interfaces in some reaction-diffusion systems with chemical-biological applications, evolutionary free boundary problems of parabolic type or for Navier-Stokes equations, and a variational approach to evolution problems for the Ginzburg-Landau functional
Optimal transportation and applications : lectures given at the C.I.M.E. summer school held in Martina Franca, Italy, September 2-8, 2001 by C.I.M.E Course on Optimal Transportation and Applications( Book )

18 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Leading researchers in the field of Optimal Transportation, with different views and perspectives, contribute to this Summer School volume: Monge-Ampre and Monge-Kantorovich theory, shape optimization and mass transportation are linked, among others, to applications in fluid mechanics granular material physics and statistical mechanics, emphasizing the attractiveness of the subject from both a theoretical and applied point of view. The volume is designed to become a guide to researchers willing to enter into this challenging and useful theory
Functions of bounded variation and free discontinuity problems by Luigi Ambrosio( Book )

18 editions published between 2000 and 2006 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book deals with a class of mathematical problems which involve the minimization of the sum of a volume and a surface energy and have lately been referred to as 'free discontinuity problems'. The aim of this book is twofold: The first three chapters present all the basic prerequisites for the treatment of free discontinuity and other variational problems in a systematic, general, and self-contained way. In the later chapters, the reader is introduced to the theory of free discontinuity problems, to the space of special functions of bounded variation, and is presented with a detailed analysis of the Mumford-Shah image segmentation problem. Existence, regularity and qualitative properties of solutions are explained and a survey is given on the current knowledge of this challenging mathematical problem. The theory embodies classical problems, e.g. related to phase transitions, or fracture and plasticity in continuum mechanics, as well as more recent ones like edge detection in image analysis. This book provides the reader with a solid introduction to the field, written by principle contributors to the theory."--Publisher's description
Calculus of variations and partial differential equations : topics on geometrical evolution problems and degree theory by Luigi Ambrosio( Book )

15 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The link between Calculus of Variations and Partial Differential Equations has always been strong, because variational problems produce, via their Euler-Lagrange equation, a differential equation and, conversely, a differential equation can often be studied by variational methods. At the summer school in Pisa in September 1996, Luigi Ambrosio and Norman Dancer each gave a course on a classical topic in a self-contained presentation accessible to Ph. D. students, bridging the gap between standard courses and advanced research on these topics. The resulting book is divided accordingly into 2 parts, and illustrates the 2-way interaction of problems and methods."--Jacket

Nonlinear PDE's and applications : C.I.M.E. Summer School, Cetraro, Italy, 2008 by Stefano Bianchini( Book )

14 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume collects the notes of the CIME course "Nonlinear PDE's and applications" held in Cetraro (Italy) on June 23-28, 2008. It consists of four series of lectures, delivered by Stefano Bianchini (SISSA, Trieste), Eric A. Carlen (Rutgers University), Alexander Mielke (WIAS, Berlin), and Cédric Villani (Ecole Normale Superieure de Lyon). They presented a broad overview of far-reaching findings and exciting new developments concerning, in particular, optimal transport theory, nonlinear evolution equations, functional inequalities, and differential geometry. A sampling of the main topics considered here includes optimal transport, Hamilton-Jacobi equations, Riemannian geometry, and their links with sharp geometric/functional inequalities, variational methods for studying nonlinear evolution equations and their scaling properties, and the metric/energetic theory of gradient flows and of rate-independent evolution problems. The book explores the fundamental connections between all of these topics and points to new research directions in contributions by leading experts in these fields
Modelling and optimisation of flows on networks : Cetraro, Italy 2009 by Luigi Ambrosio( Book )

23 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years flows in networks have attracted the interest of many researchers from different areas, e.g. applied mathematicians, engineers, physicists, economists. The main reason for this ubiquity is the wide and diverse range of applications, such as vehicular traffic, supply chains, blood flow, irrigation channels, data networks and others. This book presents an extensive set of notes by world leaders on the main mathematical techniques used to address such problems, together with investigations into specific applications. The main focus is on partial differential equations in networks, but ordinary differential equations and optimal transport are also included. Moreover, the modeling is completed by analysis, numerics, control and optimization of flows in networks. The book will be a valuable resource for every researcher or student interested in the subject

The text can also pave the way to more advanced courses in probability, stochastic processes or geomet
