- Viscosity solutions to singular parabolic problems
A prototype problem we study is
u_t = (sgn u_x)_x, u(x,0) = u_0(x), x is in (0,L), t>0,
augmented with boundary conditions.
This equation may be equivalently written as
u_t = (dW/dp(u_x))_x, u(x,0) = u_0(x) (*)
where W(p) = |p|.
Hence, an easy generalization is to consider a piecewise linear and convex function W.
We define the notion of viscosity solutions to equations like (*).
We show that weak solution to (*), where u_0 belongs to BV(0,L) are in fact viscosity solutions.
We recall that a comparison principle holds for viscosity solutions.
We show that this tool is very useful to deduce properties of solution.
We will show examples.

- Gradient flows with wiggly potential: a variational approach to the dynamics
Variational techniques and global minimisation have been proven to be very successful in many applications in materials science.
The notion of Γ-convergence has been introduced to study the asymptotic behaviour of (global) minimizers of energy functionals in the limit
when the parameters (related to the multiscale nature of the problem) get small.
Even if Γ-convergence may fail in giving the correct description of the effect of local minimizers,
variational techniques can be still applied to follow the pattern of the local minimizers of energy functionals.
In this seminar I will present some recent results on microstructure evolution in materials undergoing martensitic phase transition (gradient flows with wiggly potentials).
The results are obtained in collaboration with Andrea Braides (Dept. of Mathematics, University of Rome 'Tor Vergata', Italy)
and Johannes Zimmer (Dept. of Mathematical Sciences, University of Bath, UK).

- Orbital stability of standing waves for the nonlinear Schrödinger equation coupled with the Maxwell equation
In this talk, we consider the orbital stability of standing waves for the nonlinear Schrödinger equation coupled with the Maxwell equation.
Applying the variational argument due to Cazenave-Lions, we show the standing wave is orbitally stable when the nonlinearity is quadratic and the coupling constant is small.
This is a joint work with Mathieu Colin (University of Bordeaux).
