This seminar addresses bachelor and master students interested in the analysis of partial differential equations (PDEs). It focuses on elliptic PDEs, where the direct method of the calculus of variations provides a powerful tool to handle linear as well as nonlinear problems by investigating the minimality properties of the functional associated with the PDE. Closely related to this is the method of Gamma-convergence, which allows it to study sequences of functionals and minimization problems. A background with courses in analysis, functional analysis, and introduction to PDEs is useful to attend the seminar, but the topics for the presentations will be adapted to the background of the participants.
