Abstract seminario Leoni
We study the existence and regularity of non-trivial solutions to a
one-phase Bernoulli free boundary problem with mixed
periodic-Dirichlet boundary conditions. This is joint work with
Giovanni Gravina.

Abstract seminario Fonseca
A variational model in the context of the gradient theory for
fluid-fluid phase transitions with small scale heterogeneities is
studied. In particular, the case where the scale $\varepsilon$ of the
small homogeneities is of the same order of the scale governing the
phase transition is considered. Here the interaction between
homogenization and the phase transitions process will lead, in the
limit as $\varepsilon \to 0$, to an anisotropic interfacial energy.
