  • nonlocal minimal surfaces, regularity theory and applications




We consider surfaces which minimize a nonlocal perimeter functional and we discuss their interior regularity and rigidity properties, in a quantitative and qualitative way, and their (perhaps rather surprising) boundary behavior. We present at least a sketch of the proofs of these results, in a way that aims to be as elementary and self contained as possible, referring to the papers [CRS10, SV13, CV13, BFV14, FV, DSV15, CSV16] for full details.
