The activity in mathematical analysis is mainly focussed on ordinary and partial differential equations, on dynamical systems, on the calculus of variations, and on control theory. Connections of these topics with differential geometry are also developed.The activity in mathematical modelling is oriented to subjects for which the main technical tools come from mathematical analysis. The present themes are multiscale analysis, mechanics of materials, micromagnetics, modelling of biological systems, and problems related to control theory.The applications of mathematics developed in this course are related to the numerical analysis of partial differential equations and of control problems. This activity is organized in collaboration with MathLab for the study of problems coming from the real world, from industrial applications, and from complex systems.

## Minimal surfaces and the Bernstein problem

We will start from some classical results on minimal surfaces, including the theory of Douglas Rado with the final goal to discuss the recent results on the Bernstein problem for stable minimal surfaces.

## Linear and nonlinear bifurcation problems (Topics in Ad. Analysis 2)

After introducing the theory of analytic functions between Banach spaces, we shall present perturbative results for the spectrum of linear operators, in particular for separated eigenvalues of closed operators, with applications to the stability of traveling water waves. Then we shall present bifurcation results of periodic and quasi-periodic solutions of nonlinear dynamical systems as well as homoclinic solutions to hyperbolic equilibria of Hamiltonian systems.
