Symmetry and symmetry breaking for optimizers of functional inequalities
Zusammenfassung: In this talk I will present a series of results on the symmetry properties of optimizers of functional inequalities which are invariant under a certain symmetry group. The symmetry issue is of big importance in many of the applications of those inequalities, and also in the study of many physical systems for which knowing when the symmetry is broken is of the utmost importance. The results that I will present are mainly theoretical, showing in which cases one can prove symmetry and symmetry breaking, and by which methods. But in order to understand some of the results, some numerical computations have been very useful for us and therefore I will also explain the interesting results that they suggest.
Alle Interessierten sind hiermit herzlich eingeladen. Eine halbe Stunde vor dem Vortrag gibt es Kaffee und Tee im Sozialraum (Raum 448) im 4. Stock.
Treffpunkt zum Abendessen um 18.00 Uhr wird noch bekannt gegeben.
