of the Research group analysis


The research specialties of the research group analysis are in the fields partial differential equations, calculus of variations, and geometric analysis. An important aspect is the existence and regularity theory for time-dependent problems. We work on a wide variety of problems such as geometric flows, obstacle problems, knot energies, degenerate/singular parabolic equations and systems, and problems with linear growth, which can be used for example in image processing.
Minimalfläche von CostaOur research attaches great importance to team work and international cooperations. The working group has numerous international contacts and cooperation partners in Germany (Aachen, Duisburg-Essen, Erlangen, Karlsruhe), Finland (Helsinki, Jyväskylä), Italy (Cagliari, Florence, Naples, Pavia), Japan (Tokio), Poland (Warsaw), and Switzerland (Zurich).
