Title : Obstacle-Ginzburg-Landau Functionals

Abstract : We will discuss a variation of the Ginzburg-Landau functional, involving a so-called "double-obstacle" term (first studied by Elliott and Blowey).
We will describe fast (GPU-optimized) variational solvers for gradient flows of these functionals (Allen-Cahn and Cahn-Hilliard equivalents), and also look into certain higher-dimensional generalisations.
