Giovanni Gravina Carnegie Mellon University Title: An introduction to gammaconvergence Abstract: In this talk we will look at the socalled gammaconvergence, a notion of convergence for functionals which is particularly suited for problems in the calculus of variations. We'll start by motivating the definition and we'll prove properties of gammalimits. Time permitting, we'll study the gammaconvergence of the Dirichlet energy on a perforated domain to investigate the behavior of solutions to Poisson's equation as the perforation vanishes.
