"Lipschitz mappings: From differentiability questions
to existence of Lipschitz solutions of PDE"
I will present a selection of (open) problems concerning Lipschitz
mappings in Euclidean spaces. The first group of these problems
was motivated by the study of differentiability of Lipschitz
functions in infinite dimensional spaces, but it was soon
recognized that this is an area deserving investigation in its
own merit. There appears to be an intimate connection between the
questions of differentiability, contractions of sets onto balls,
solvability of some partial differential equations, and some
other strange phenomena that may possibly happen in the plane.
Coffee, Cookies, and Company will be provided
in our newly renovated faculty lounge, at 3:45 pm.
You are also invited to the "after colloquium coffee chat" in Beit-Belgia.
