The aim of the school is to offer an outline on recent advances on Calculus of Variations, Control Theory and Geometric Measure Theory on Carnot-Caratheodory groups and on more general metric spaces. Analysis and Geometry on these structures have been object of extensive research showing interplay between Non Linear P.D.E’s, Geometric Function Theory, Quasiconformal Mappings, Harmonic Mappings and with applications ranging from Minimal Surfaces to Nonlinear Elasticity.
It is intention of the organizers to put together young and well-known researchers and to encourage informal discussion on current developments in the area.
