Introduction:
Variational formulations of physical and biological questions are central in applied mathematics. The goal of this minisymposium is to provide a forum to discuss recent progress and promising directions in calculus of variations, geometric measure theory, partial differential equations, and applications to science and engineering. Thematic areas of focus will include: variational problems involving material defects, multi-scale problems, thin structures, homogenization and mixing, and interfacial phenomena.
