A quantitative rigidity result for a two-dimensional Frenkel–Kontorova model

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

We consider a Frenkel–Kontorova system of harmonic oscillators in a two-dimensional Euclidean lattice and we obtain a quantitative estimate on the angular function of the equilibria. The proof relies on a PDE method related to a classical conjecture by E. De Giorgi, also in view of an elegant technique based on complex variables that was introduced by A. Farina. In the discrete setting, a careful analysis of the reminders is needed to exploit these types of methodologies inspired by continuum models.
