|Title: Axisymmetric critical points on the sphere of a nonlocal isoperimetric problem|
|Abstract: The nonlocal isoperimetric problem in consideration here involves the minimization of the sharp interface limit of a nonlocal perturbation of the Cahn-Hilliard energy along with a constraint. Besides its connection to diblock copolymer models this problem also attracts interest as a simple model of energy-driven pattern formation. In this talk we will consider the problem on the two dimensional sphere, and concentrating on the rigidity of the criticality condition we will analyze critical points under an axisymmetry ansatz.|
