 A class of degenerate elliptic equations with nonlinear boundary conditions We consider positive solutions of the problem $$(*)\qquad \left\{ \begin{array}{l}-\mbox{div}(x_{n}^{a}\nabla u)=bx_{n}^{a}u^{p}\;\;\;\;\;\mbox{in}\;\;\mathbb{R}_{+}^{n}, \\ \frac{\partial u}{\partial \nu^a}=u^{q} \;\;\;\;\;\;\;\; \;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\mbox{on}\;\;\partial \mathbb{R}_{+}^{n}, \\ \end{array} \right.$$ where $a\in (-1,0)\cup(0,1)$, $b\geq 0$, $p, q\gt 1$ and $\frac{\partial u}{\partial \nu^a}:=-\lim_{x_{n}\rightarrow 0^+}x_{n}^{a}\frac{\partial u}{\partial x_{n}}$. In special case $b=0$, it is associated to fractional Laplacian equation $(-\Delta)^{s}u=u^{q}$ in entire space $\mathbb{R}^{n-1}$. We obtain the existence of positive axially symmetric solutions to ($*$) for the case $a\in (-1,0)$ in $n\geq3$ for supercritical exponents $p\geq\frac{n+a+2}{n+a-2}, \;\;q\geq\frac{n-a}{n+a-2}$. The nonexistence is obtained for the case $a\in (-1,0)$, $b\geq 0$ and any $p,~q\gt 1$ in $n=2$ as well.

 Optimization Related to Some Nonlocal Problems of Kirchhoff Type In this paper we introduce two rearrangement optimization problems, one being a maximization and the other a minimization problem, related to a nonlocal boundary value problem of Kirchhoff type. Using the theory of rearrangements as developed by G. R. Burton we are able to show that both problems are solvable, and derive the corresponding optimality conditions. These conditions in turn provide information concerning the locations of the optimal solutions. The strict convexity of the energy functional plays a crucial role in both problems. The popular case in which the rearrangement class (i.e., the admissible set) is generated by a characteristic function is also considered. We show that in this case, the maximization problem gives rise to a free boundary problem of obstacle type, which turns out to be unstable. On the other hand, the minimization problem leads to another free boundary problem of obstacle type, which is stable. Some numerical results are included to confirm the theory.

 Infinitely Many Solutions for the Prescribed Boundary Mean Curvature Problem in $\mathbb B^N$ We consider the following prescribed boundary mean curvature problem in $\mathbb B^N$ with the Euclidean metric: $\begin{cases} \displaystyle -\Delta u =0,\quad u\gt 0 &\text{in }\mathbb B^N, \\[2ex] \displaystyle \frac{\partial u}{\partial\nu} + \frac{N-2}{2} u =\frac{N-2}{2} \widetilde K(x) u^{2^\#-1} \quad & \text{on }\mathbb S^{N-1}, \end{cases}$ where $\widetilde K(x)$ is positive and rotationally symmetric on $\mathbb S^{N-1}, 2^\#=\frac{2(N-1)}{N-2}$. We show that if $\widetilde K(x)$ has a local maximum point, then the above problem has infinitely many positive solutions that are not rotationally symmetric on $\mathbb S^{N-1}$.

 Regularity of Standing Waves on Lipschitz Domains We analyze the regularity of standing wave solutions to nonlinear SchrÃ¶dinger equations of power type on bounded domains, concentrating on Lipschitz domains. We establish optimal regularity results in this setting, in Besov spaces and in HÃ¶lder spaces. Keywords:standing waves, elliptic regularity, Lipschitz domainCategories:35J25, 35J65

 Extrema of Low Eigenvalues of the Dirichlet-Neumann Laplacian on a Disk We study extrema of the first and the second mixed eigenvalues of the Laplacian on the disk among some families of Dirichlet--Neumann boundary conditions. We show that the minimizer of the second eigenvalue among all mixed boundary conditions lies in a compact $1$-parameter family for which an explicit description is given. Moreover, we prove that among all partitions of the boundary with bounded number of parts on which Dirichlet and Neumann conditions are imposed alternately, the first eigenvalue is maximized by the uniformly distributed partition.
