UTK-PDE Distinguished Lecture Series

Speaker: Professor Ovidiu Savin (Department of Mathematics, Columbia University)

Title: The Monge-Ampère equation

Abstract: The Monge-Ampère equation plays an important role in many areas of mathematics like geometry, fluid mechanics, optimization etc. I will give an overview of the classical regularity theory for this equation. I will discuss the theory of weak solutions introduced by Alexandrov, Caffarelli's interior estimates, partial regularity, and some applications to the Minkowski problem and to optimal transportation.
