Title: Stability for some Sobolev and isoperimetric inequalities
Speaker: Robin Neumayer
Speaker Info: University of Texas, Austin
Brief Description:
Special Note:

For a given sharp functional or geometric inequality, the question of stability asks the following: if a set or function almost attains equality in the inequality, then is it close, in a suitable sense, to one of the equality cases? We discuss stability results for the Sobolev inequality for $p \geq 2$, based on joint work with A. Figalli, and for the anisotropic isoperimetric inequality.
