Gandalf (Pure Maths Student Seminar): On the elliptic Monge-Ampere equation

Presented by Daniel Ballesteros-Chavez, Durham

11 May 2016 16:00 in CM221

The Monge-Ampere equation is a fully nonlinear partial differential equation strongly related to the Minkowski problem of hypersurfaces with prescribed Gauss curvature. Topological methods are used to state the existence of solutions by using a priori estimates. We will talk about these methods in the elliptic type case.
