This book offers a comprehensive introduction to modern techniques in the study of free boundary problems of diffusive type. Applications of such methods are thoroughly explained by emblematic examples of the theory and several geometric ideas and insights are carefully discussed, making the text both accessible and appealing to a broad readership working in partial differential equations, calculus of variations, and geometric analysis.
An advanced introduction to the theory of free boundary problems
Covers all recent developments in the field
Of interest to researchers and graduate students working in partial differential equations and applications
