UBC Mathematics Colloquium
Parabolic systems with rough initial data
Fri., Oct. 13, 2009, 3:00pm, MATX 1100
Studying non-smooth geometric objects is a very important
and modern research topic in differential geometry and geometric
analysis. In particular it is interesting to know to which extent
these objects can be approximated by smooth ones.
In this talk I want to indicate how this problem can be related to the
study of systems of parabolic equations with irregular initial data.
Moreover I want to discuss various situations in which existence results
for these initial value problems have been obtained.
This is a joint work with Herbert Koch (Bonn).
