Variational problems for anisotropic surface energies
[ Abstract ]
A surface energy is anisotropic if it depends on the direction of the surface. The minimizer of an anisotropic surface energy among all closed surfaces enclosing a fixed volume is called the Wulff shape. We will discuss the characterization of the Wulff shape, the uniqueness and stability of solutions to variational problems for anisotropic surface energy with several boundary conditions.
