These volumes, dedicated to the great Italian mathematician Ennio De Giorgi on the occasion of his sixtieth birthday, present a series of essays by an international group of leading mathematicians. De Giorgi is well known for his fundamental results ...
on the regularity of solutions of elliptic partial differential equations, minimal surfaces, and the asymptotic analysis of variational problems. These essays give an overview of recent developments in mathematical analysis, particularly in partial differential equations and the calculus of variations, which clearly shows the influence of De Giorgi's work.
The collection is completed with an interview with Ennio De Giorgi himself about the role of mathematics in the sciences and in society.
