Title:
Variational approaches to the analysis and modeling of interfacial motions

Abstract:
Tracking the evolution of interfaces represents a fundamental topic arising in a variety of scientific simulations. In applications, the phenomena under consideration can exhibit additional challenges to its numerical simulation, including the occurrence of topological changes, volume constraints, and inertial effects. We will present variational methods for investigating problems related to the simulation of 2D and 3D multiphase curvature flows and free boundary problems. Volume constrained motions will also be investigated through the use of minimizing movements, and we will remark about aspects of their numerical realization.
