Abstract/Media

There are lots of very good techniques for studying the regularity of a minimizer of some functional (think harmonic functions, minimal surfaces etc). But what if you want to study something that doesn't minimize a functional? We will show how GMT and harmonic analysis can help us use shiny tools from the calculus of variations in a non-variational setting. Some of what we will talk about is joint work with Matthew Badger and Tatiana Toro.
