Calculus of Variations and Partial Differential Equations attracts and collects many of the important top-quality contributions to this field of research, and stresses the interactions between analysts, geometers and physicists.

Coverage in the journal includes:

- Minimization problems for variational integrals, existence and regularity theory for minimizers and critical points, geometric measure theory

- Variational methods for partial differential equations, linear and nonlinear eigenvalue problems, bifurcation theory

- Variational problems in differential and complex geometry

- Variational methods in global analysis and topology

- Dynamical systems, symplectic geometry, periodic solutions of Hamiltonian systems

- Variational methods in mathematical physics, nonlinear elasticity, crystals, asymptotic variational problems, homogenization, capillarity phenomena, free boundary problems and phase transitions

- Monge-Ampère equations and other fully nonlinear partial differential equations related to problems in differential geometry, complex geometry, and physics.
