Local Speaker: 

In this talk, I aim to present the celebrated Mountain Pass Theorem, an interesting technique in the calculus of variations, and work through the proof. I plan to provide sufficient background to prepare the audience before introducing this result. I will conclude with an example-application of the theorem to establish the existence of a solution for a nonlinear PDE.
