Om Global Solution Curves for Semilinear El
This book provides an introduction to the bifurcation theory approach to global solution curves and studies the exact multiplicity of solutions for semilinear Dirichlet problems, aiming to obtain a complete understanding of the solution set. This understanding opens the way to efficient computation of all solutions. Detailed results are obtained in case of circular domains, and some results for general domains are also presented.The author is one of the original contributors to the field of exact multiplicity results.Contents:Curves of Solutions on General Domains:Continuation of SolutionsSymmetric Domains in R2Turning Points and the Morse IndexConvex Domains in R2Pohozaev's Identity and Non-Existence of Solutions for Elliptic SystemsProblems at ResonanceCurves of Solutions on Balls:Preliminary ResultsPositivity of Solution to the Linearized ProblemUniqueness of the Solution CurveDirection of a Turn and Exact MultiplicityOn a Class of Concave-Convex EquationsMonotone Separation of GraphsThe Case of Polynomial ƒ(u) in Two DimensionsThe Case When ƒ(0) < 0Symmetry BreakingSpecial EquationsOscillations of the Solution CurveUniqueness for Non-Autonomous ProblemsExact Multiplicity for Non-Autonomous ProblemsNumerical Computation of SolutionsRadial Solutions of Neumann ProblemGlobal Solution Curves for a Class of Elliptic SystemsThe Case of a “Thin” AnnulusA Class of p-Laplace ProblemsTwo Point Boundary Value Problems:Positive Solutions of Autonomous ProblemsDirection of the TurnStability and Instability of SolutionsS-Shaped Solution CurvesComputing the Location and the Direction of BifurcationA Class of Symmetric NonlinearitiesGeneral NonlinearitiesInfinitely Many Curves with Pitchfork BifurcationAn Oscillatory Bifurcation from Zero: A Model ExampleExact Multiplicity for Hamiltonian SystemsClamped Elastic Beam EquationSteady States of Convective EquationsQuasilinear Boundary Value ProblemsThe Time Map for Quasilinear EquationsUniqueness for a p-Laplace CaseReadership: Graduate students and researchers in analysis and differential equations, and numerical analysis and computational mathematics.
