We consider the Lyapunov functional, of the rescaled Extended Fisher-Kolmogorov equation This is a fourth order generalization of the Fisher–Kolmogorov or Allen–Cahn equation. We prove that if ε → 0, then tends to the area functional in the sense of Γ-limits, where the transition energy is given by the one-dimensional kink of the Extended Fisher–Kolmogorov equation.
