Title: Local and global minimality results for a nonlocal isoperimetric problem

Abstract: We consider the sharp interface Ohta-Kawasaki functional related to the modeling of diblock copolymers. After reviewing the model and a local minimality criterion recently established, we present several applications to the study of the stability and the global minimality of striped patterns.
