This quantity includes the elevated models of the lectures given through the authors on the C. I. M. E. educational convention held in Cetraro, Italy, from July 12 to 19, 1997. The papers gathered listed here are extensive surveys of the present examine within the mathematics of elliptic curves, and in addition comprise numerous new effects which can't be came across in different places within the literature. due to readability and style of exposition, and to the historical past fabric explicitly integrated within the textual content or quoted within the references, the quantity is easily fitted to learn scholars in addition to to senior mathematicians.

Example text

We impose that f does not have a sublinear growth at infinity. More precisely, we assume (f3) limu→+∞ f (u)/u > V L∞ . Our framework includes the following cases: (i) f (u) = u2 that corresponds to the Fisher equation (see Fisher [80]) and the Kolmogoroff-Petrovsky-Piscounoff equation [123] (see also Kazdan and Warner [117] for a comprehensive treatment of these equations); (ii) f (u) = u(N+2)/(N −2) (for N ≥ 6) which is related to the conform scalar curvature equation, cf. Li and Ni [135]. 1. Exact value of the bifurcation parameter For any R > 0, denote BR = {x ∈ ÊN ; |x| < R} and set λ1 (R) = min BR |∇u|2 dx; u ∈ H01 (BR ), BR V (x)u2 dx = 1 .

109) provided that α < N − 2. Set w(x) = Cv(x) − u(x). Hence w(x) → 0 as |x| → ∞. Let us choose C sufficiently large so that w(0) > 0. We claim that this implies w(x) > 0 ∀x ∈ ÊN . 110) Indeed, if not, let x0 ∈ ÊN be a local minimum point of w. This means that w(x0 ) < 0, ∇w(x0 ) = 0 and Δw(x0 ) ≥ 0. 111) provided that C > λ. 110). Consequently, u(x) ≤ Cv(x) ≤ C |x|−α, for any x ∈ ÊN . 76), ∀ x ∈ ÊN . 114) provided that 2α < N − 2, and so on. Let nα be the largest integer such that nα α < N − 2. 3(i) and (iii) in [135] by Li and Ni, we obtain ∀ x ∈ ÊN .

C) Arguing by contradiction, there exists an unbounded sequence (un ) in H01 (Ω) and a positive constant C such that for any n ≥ 1, E(un ) ≤ C. Hence 1 2 ∇un Ω 2 dx ≤ Set un = tn vn , where tn = un Ω L2 (Ω) 1 2 Ω G0 x, un dx + C ≤ C 1 + un → ∞ and vn = un / un ∇vn 2 dx ≤ C 1 + L2 (Ω) . 2 L2 (Ω) . 120) hence (vn ) is bounded in H01 (Ω). e. in Ω. This implies that v L (Ω) = 1. We also deduce that 1 2 Ω |∇v|2 dx ≤ lim inf n→∞ Ω G0 x, tn vn dx ≤ tn2 Ω lim sup n→∞ G0 x, tn vn dx. 122) G0 x, tn vn+ tn2 [v>0] dx = I1 + I2 + I3 .
