The sector of geometric variational difficulties is fast-moving and influential. those difficulties have interaction with many different components of arithmetic and feature robust relevance to the research of integrable platforms, mathematical physics and PDEs. The workshop 'Variational difficulties in Differential Geometry' held in 2009 on the college of Leeds introduced jointly across the world revered researchers from many various parts of the sphere. subject matters mentioned integrated fresh advancements in harmonic maps and morphisms, minimum and CMC surfaces, extremal Kähler metrics, the Yamabe useful, Hamiltonian variational difficulties and subject matters concerning gauge idea and to the Ricci stream. those articles replicate the entire spectrum of the topic and canopy not just present effects, but additionally the numerous equipment and strategies utilized in attacking variational difficulties. With a mixture of unique and expository papers, this quantity types a invaluable reference for more matured researchers and an incredible creation for graduate scholars and postdoctoral researchers.
