Title: Mapping, Transport and Diffusion: A Energetic Variational Approach

Abstract: In this talk, I will introduce some analytical techniques to study the dynamics and equilibrium of complicated systems, such as those in transport and diffusion. The main ingredient is to introduce a unified energetic variational approach in order to capture various couplings and constraints.
