AbstractWe view the free energy of a diblock copolymer system as a variational problem, in which the integrand of the functional contains an interesting nonlocal term, and a small parameter epsilon. We prove that as epsilon approaches 0, the energy minimizers develop a growing number, of order epsilon(-1/3), of periodic oscillations, explaining the micro-phase separation phenomenon.
