In the first lecture I will discuss some of the main ideas in the theory of regularity for minimal surfaces and for free boundary problems and how they influence each other. In the next two lectures I will dwell in more detail on the main ideas of the mathematical theory and several problems where phase transitions and minimal surfaces interact, mainly when the phase transition energy involves bulk energy in each phase and transition energy along the interphase.
