Calculus of Variations



ROMA, July 4-8 2005

The aim of the School is, on the one hand, to present some basic
aspects of the functions of bounded variations and,
on the other hand, to introduce some recent related problems

The lectures are mainly thought for PhD students and researchers in Analysis,
but no particular background is required.
