Publication# A critically degenerate elliptic Dirichlet problem, spectral theory and bifurcation

Abstract

In an open, bounded subset Omega of R-N such that 0 is an element of Omega we consider the nonlinear eigenvalue problem -Sigma(N)(i,j,=1) partial derivative(i){A(ij)(x)partial derivative(j)u} + V(x)u + n(x,del u)+ g(x, u) = lambda u in Omega integral(Omega) u(2) + Sigma(N)(i,j=1) A(ij)partial derivative(j)u partial derivative(i)u dx < infinity and u = 0 on partial derivative Omega, where V is an element of L-infinity(Omega) and the nonlinear terms n and g are of higher order near 0 so that the formal linearization about the trivial solution u 0 is - Sigma(N)(i,j=1) partial derivative(i){A(ij)(x)partial derivative(j)u} + Vu = lambda u. The leading term is degenerate elliptic on Omega because it is assumed that there are constants C-2 >= C-1 > 0 such that C1 vertical bar x vertical bar(2)vertical bar xi vertical bar(2)

Fréchet derivative

In mathematics, the Fréchet derivative is a derivative defined on normed spaces. Named after Maurice Fréchet, it is commonly used to generalize the derivative of a real-valued function of a single real variable to the case of a vector-valued function of multiple real variables, and to define the functional derivative used widely in the calculus of variations. Generally, it extends the idea of the derivative from real-valued functions of one real variable to functions on normed spaces.

Nonlinear system

In mathematics and science, a nonlinear system (or a non-linear system) is a system in which the change of the output is not proportional to the change of the input. Nonlinear problems are of interest to engineers, biologists, physicists, mathematicians, and many other scientists since most systems are inherently nonlinear in nature. Nonlinear dynamical systems, describing changes in variables over time, may appear chaotic, unpredictable, or counterintuitive, contrasting with much simpler linear systems.

Derivative

In mathematics, the derivative shows the sensitivity of change of a function's output with respect to the input. Derivatives are a fundamental tool of calculus. For example, the derivative of the position of a moving object with respect to time is the object's velocity: this measures how quickly the position of the object changes when time advances. The derivative of a function of a single variable at a chosen input value, when it exists, is the slope of the tangent line to the graph of the function at that point.

In this thesis we study stability from several viewpoints. After covering the practical importance, the rich history and the ever-growing list of manifestations of stability, we study the following. (i) (Statistical identification of stable dynamical syste ...

In this note, we prove that if a subharmonic function Delta u >= 0 has pure second derivatives partial derivative(ii)u that are signed measures, then their negative part (partial derivative(ii)u)- belongs to L-1 (in particular, it is not singular). We then ...
