The School was mainly addressed to young researchers coming from different disciplines with a common interest in variational problems defined by curvature energy functionals. Curves and surfaces obtained as critical points of these functionals are investigated from a theoretical and numerical point of view. Applications are shown in Geometry, Physics and Biophysics

Overview

The School was mainly addressed to young researchers coming from different disciplines with a common interest in variational problems defined by curvature energy functionals. Curves and surfaces obtained as critical points of these functionals are investigated from a theoretical and numerical point of view. Applications are shown in Geometry, Physics and Biophysics. An elementary background in Differential Geometry and Variational Calculus is assumed. Written for: Graduate students and researchers in mathematics and physics, as well as researchers in chemistry and biology
