Tristan Rivière

Field of Study
Partial Differential Equations in Geometry and Physics
From 1/2019 – 3/2019:

Tristan Rivière’s research interests include analysis of partial differential equations arising in physics and geometry; calculus of variations; geometric analysis; application of geometric measure theory to partial differential equations; and the geometry of structures of singularities, shock, and defects for weak solutions to elliptic, parabolic, and hyperbolic partial differential equations.
