What is this at all?

The 13th International Internet Seminar on Evolution Equations is intended to be an introduction to the analysis of evolution equations with gradient structure, with an emphasis on nonlinear parabolic equations. Gradient systems arise naturally in many physical models such as diffusion models, phase separation models and in surface evolution, but they also arise artificially as steepest descent methods in root finding algorithms, in various optimisation problems or in image analysis. The dissipation of some physical or abstract energy has an influence on the well-posedness of these gradient systems and on the qualitative behaviour of their solutions, including parabolic regularity, order preserving properties, or long-time behaviour.

In this introductory course, starting from finite dimensional models, we will discuss some of these aspects. The lectures are at a beginning graduate level and assume only basic familiarity with Functional Analysis.

Organised by the European consortium "International School on Evolution Equations", the annual Internet Seminars introduce graduate students, PhD students and postdocs to varying subjects related to Evolution Equations. The course consists of three phases. In Phase 1 (October-February), a weekly lecture is provided via the ISEM website. In Phase 2 (March-May), the participants form small international groups to work on projects. The projects complement the theory of Phase 1 and provide some applications of it. Phase 3 (13-19 June 2010) consists of the final one-week workshop in Sporthotel Kacov (Czech Republic). The teams present their projects, and lectures will be delivered by leading experts in the field.

Virtual lecturers:
Ralph Chill (Metz) Eva Fasangova (Prague/Ulm)

The organisation of the course in Darmstadt:

In the Phase 1 (WS09/10) the participants of the seminar shall meet on a weekly basis and discuss the material provided by the virtual lecturers.
