  • Non-local energies, phase transitions, plane-like minimizers, fractional Laplacian


We consider a non-local phase transition equation set in a periodic medium and we construct solutions whose interface stays in a slab of prescribed direction and universal width. The solutions constructed also enjoy a local minimality property with respect to a suitable non-local energy functional.
