We prove that given a minimal hypersurface $\Gamma$ in a compact Riemannian manifold $M$ without boundary, if all the Jacobi fields of $\Gamma$ are generated by ambient isometries, then we can find solutions of the Allen-Cahn equation $-\varepsilon^2\Delta u +W'(u)=0$ on $M$, for sufficiently small $\varepsilon>0$, whose nodal sets converge to $\Gamma$. This extends the results of Pacard-Ritore (in the case of closed manifolds and zero mean curvature). 
Rigidity of low index solutions on $S^3$ via a Frankel theorem for the Allen-Cahn equation.
We prove a rigidity theorem in the style of Urbano for the Allen-Cahn equation on the three-sphere: the critical points with Morse index five are symmetric functions that vanish on a Clifford torus.Expand
Ground states of semilinear elliptic equations
We study solutions of $\Delta u - F'(u)=0$, where the potential $F$ can have an arbitrary number of wells at arbitrary heights, including bottomless wells with subcritical decay. In our setting,Expand
The Allen-Cahn equation on the complete Riemannian manifolds of finite volume
The semi-linear, elliptic PDE ACε(u) := −ε2∆u +W (u) = 0 is called the Allen-Cahn equation. In this article we will prove the existence of finite energy solution to the AllenCahn equation on certainExpand
Variational aspects of phase transitions with prescribed mean curvature

A comparison of the Almgren-Pitts and the Allen-Cahn min-max theory
Min-max theory for the Allen-Cahn equation was developed by Guaraco and Gaspar-Guaraco. They showed that the Allen-Cahn widths are greater than or equal to the Almgren-Pitts widths. In this articleExpand
Mean curvature flow and low energy solutions of the parabolic Allen-Cahn equation on the three-sphere

Multiplicity one and strictly stable Allen-Cahn minimal hypersurfaces
Allen-Cahn minimal hypersurfaces are limits of nodal sets of solutions to the Allen-Cahn equation. The energy of the solutions concentrates on each connected component of the hypersurface as anExpand


Bounded solutions to the Allen-Cahn equation with level sets of any compact topology
We make use of the flexibility of infinite-index solutions to the Allen-Cahn equation to show that, given any compact hypersurface $\Sigma$ of R^d, with $d\geq 4$, there is a bounded entire solutionExpand
The Allen–Cahn equation on closed manifolds
We study global variational properties of the space of solutions to $$-\varepsilon ^2\Delta u + W'(u)=0$$-ε2Δu+W′(u)=0 on any closed Riemannian manifold M. Our techniques are inspired by recentExpand
The role of minimal surfaces in the study of the Allen-Cahn equation.

Weyl law for the volume spectrum
Given $M$ a Riemannian manifold with (possibly empty) boundary, we show that its volume spectrum $\{\omega_p(M)\}_{p\in\mathbb{N}}$ satisfies a Weyl law that was conjectured by Gromov.
