Title: Quantitative isoperimetric inequalities for stable critical points of a nonlocal area functional

Abstract: We show that stable critical points of a nonlocal perturbation of the area functional, used in the modeling of microphase separation of diblock copolymers, are isolated local minimizers in small L1 neighborhoods. The corresponding result for the standard area functional is obtained as a particular case. This work is in collaboration with E. Acerbi and N. Fusco.
