Objectives

The aim of this event is to promote the scientific exchange of ideas and methods in such a broad and useful area as the Calculus of Variations. With the goal of applications to different areas such as Mathematics, Mechanics, Engineering, Economy, Finances, Chemistry, Biology, just to name a few, models and methods have been developed, with apparent different languages but that are susceptible of an unified analytical and numerical treatment.

Taking into account the most recent developments in this area of Mathematics, we wish to address problems associated with Partial Differential Equations, Optimal Control, Finite or Infinite Dimension Optimization, Shape Optimization in Structural Engineering, together with the associated computational aspects.
