Mainly I consider myself as a specialist in regularity theory in the field of nonlinear elliptic and parabolic equations and variational inequalities. Besides the classical meaning, “regularity” may also mean “improved pintegrability” or “improved fractional differentiability” in situations where more regularity cannot be obtained (e.g. see my work on compressible fluids and elasticplastic deformation with hardening). The equations considered come from continuum mechanics, fluid mechanics, Bellmann system to stochastic games. Euler equations to variational problems motivated by differential geometry. In the last two years, I developed, in collaboration with Miroslav Bulicek, several new weighted norm techniques which allow to treat a considerable broader class of variational problems with pgrowth, and also stochastic differential games like Stackelberg games rather than Nash games. These techniques will be applied in the framework of mean field games in the sense of LasryLions, furthermore for proving the long time existence of certain variational flows. A recent manuscript on the Prandtl Reuss problem (submitted) yields a new technique to obtain fractional derivatives of stress velocities. This improves the regularity theory of related problems in several directions.
