    Aims and Scope

    Advances in Calculus of Variations publishes high quality original research focusing on that part of calculus of variation and related applications which combines tools and methods from partial differential equations with geometrical techniques.

    • existence and regularity for minimizers and critical points
    • variational methods for partial differential equations
    • geometrical aspects of calculus of variation: minimal surfaces, harmonic mappings, geometrically motivated flows, curvature equations, quasi-conformal mappings
    • applications of variational methods to non-linear elasticity, free boundary problems, general relativity
    • geometric measure theory
