A class of degenerate elliptic equations with nonlinear boundary conditions
We consider positive solutions of the problem
\begin{equation}
(*)\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.
\end{equation}
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 $\mathbb{R}^{n1}$.
We obtain the existence of positive axially symmetric solutions
to ($*$) for the case $a\in
(1,0)$ in
$n\geq3$ for supercritical exponents $p\geq\frac{n+a+2}{n+a2},
\;\;q\geq\frac{na}{n+a2}$.
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.

On the Neumann problem for MongeAmpÃ¨re type equations
In this paper, we study the global regularity for
regular
MongeAmpÃ¨re type equations associated with semilinear Neumann
boundary conditions.
By establishing a priori estimates for second order derivatives,
the
classical solvability of the Neumann boundary value problem is
proved under natural conditions.
The techniques build upon the delicate and intricate treatment
of the standard MongeAmpÃ¨re case
by Lions, Trudinger and Urbas in 1986 and the recent barrier
constructions and second derivative bounds
by Jiang, Trudinger and Yang for the Dirichlet problem. We also
consider more general oblique boundary
value problems in the strictly regular case.

Nontangential Maximal Function Characterizations of Hardy Spaces Associated with Degenerate Elliptic Operators
Let $w$ be either in the Muckenhoupt class of $A_2(\mathbb{R}^n)$ weights
or in the class of $QC(\mathbb{R}^n)$ weights, and
$L_w:=w^{1}\mathop{\mathrm{div}}(A\nabla)$
the degenerate elliptic operator on the Euclidean space $\mathbb{R}^n$,
$n\ge 2$. In this article, the authors establish the nontangential
maximal function characterization
of the Hardy space $H_{L_w}^p(\mathbb{R}^n)$ associated with $L_w$ for
$p\in (0,1]$ and, when $p\in (\frac{n}{n+1},1]$ and
$w\in A_{q_0}(\mathbb{R}^n)$ with $q_0\in[1,\frac{p(n+1)}n)$,
the authors prove that the associated Riesz transform $\nabla L_w^{1/2}$
is bounded from $H_{L_w}^p(\mathbb{R}^n)$ to the weighted classical
Hardy space $H_w^p(\mathbb{R}^n)$.

Heat Kernels and Green Functions on Metric Measure Spaces
We prove that, in a setting of local Dirichlet forms on metric measure
spaces, a twosided subGaussian estimate of the heat kernel is equivalent
to the conjunction of the volume doubling propety, the elliptic Harnack
inequality and a certain estimate of the capacity between concentric balls.
The main technical tool is the equivalence between the capacity estimate and
the estimate of a mean exit time in a ball, that uses twosided estimates of
a Green function in a ball.

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:
\[
\begin{cases}
\displaystyle \Delta u =0,\quad u\gt 0 &\text{in }\mathbb B^N,
\\[2ex]
\displaystyle \frac{\partial u}{\partial\nu} + \frac{N2}{2} u =\frac{N2}{2} \widetilde K(x) u^{2^\#1} \quad & \text{on }\mathbb S^{N1},
\end{cases}
\]
where $\widetilde K(x)$ is positive and rotationally symmetric on $\mathbb
S^{N1}, 2^\#=\frac{2(N1)}{N2}$.
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 $\mathbb S^{N1}$.

Existence of Weak Solutions of Linear Subelliptic Dirichlet Problems With Rough Coefficients
This article gives an existence theory for weak solutions of second order nonelliptic linear Dirichlet problems of the form
\begin{align*}
\nabla'P(x)\nabla u +{\bf HR}u+{\bf S'G}u +Fu &= f+{\bf T'g} \text{ in }\Theta
\\
u&=\varphi\text{ on }\partial \Theta.
\end{align*}
The principal part $\xi'P(x)\xi$ of the above equation is assumed to
be comparable to a quadratic form ${\mathcal Q}(x,\xi) = \xi'Q(x)\xi$ that
may vanish for nonzero $\xi\in\mathbb{R}^n$. This is achieved using
techniques of functional analysis applied to the degenerate Sobolev
spaces $QH^1(\Theta)=W^{1,2}(\Theta,Q)$ and
$QH^1_0(\Theta)=W^{1,2}_0(\Theta,Q)$ as defined in
previous works.
Sawyer and Wheeden give a regularity theory
for a subset of the class of equations dealt with here.

Rectifiability of Optimal Transportation Plans
The regularity of solutions to optimal transportation problems has become
a hot topic in current research. It is well known by now that the optimal measure
may not be concentrated on the graph of a continuous mapping unless both the transportation
cost and the masses transported satisfy very restrictive hypotheses (including sign conditions
on the mixed fourthorder derivatives of the cost function).
The purpose of this note is to show that in spite of this,
the optimal measure is supported on a Lipschitz manifold, provided only
that the cost is $C^{2}$ with nonsingular mixed second derivative.
We use this result to provide a simple proof that solutions to Monge's
optimal transportation problem satisfy a change of variables equation
almost everywhere.

Spectral Asymptotics of Laplacians Associated with Onedimensional Iterated Function Systems with Overlaps
We set up a framework for computing the spectral dimension of a class of onedimensional
selfsimilar measures that are defined by iterated function systems
with overlaps and satisfy a family of secondorder selfsimilar
identities. As applications of our result we obtain the spectral dimension
of important measures such as the infinite Bernoulli convolution
associated with the golden ratio and convolutions of Cantortype measures.
The main novelty of our result is that the iterated function systems
we consider are not postcritically finite and do not satisfy the
wellknown open set condition.

Extrema of Low Eigenvalues of the DirichletNeumann 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 DirichletNeumann 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.

Multiplicity Results for Nonlinear Neumann Problems
In this paper we study nonlinear elliptic problems of Neumann type driven by the
$p$Laplac\ian differential operator. We look for situations guaranteeing the existence
of multiple solutions. First we study problems which are strongly resonant at infinity
at the first (zero) eigenvalue. We prove five multiplicity results, four for problems
with nonsmooth potential and one for problems with a $C^1$potential. In the last part,
for nonsmooth problems in which the potential eventually exhibits a strict
super$p$growth under a symmetry condition, we prove the existence of infinitely
many pairs of nontrivial solutions. Our approach is variational based on the critical
point theory for nonsmooth functionals. Also we present some results concerning the first
two elements of the spectrum of the negative $p$Laplacian with Neumann boundary condition.

The Resolvent of Closed Extensions of Cone Differential Operators
We study closed extensions $\underline A$ of
an elliptic differential operator $A$ on a manifold with conical
singularities, acting as an unbounded operator on a weighted $L_p$space.
Under suitable conditions we show that the resolvent
$(\lambda\underline A)^{1}$ exists
in a sector of the complex plane and decays like $1/\lambda$ as
$\lambda\to\infty$. Moreover, we determine the structure of the resolvent
with enough precision to guarantee existence and boundedness of imaginary
powers of $\underline A$.
As an application we treat the LaplaceBeltrami operator for a metric with
straight conical degeneracy and describe domains yielding
maximal regularity for the Cauchy problem $\dot{u}\Delta u=f$, $u(0)=0$.

Given a homogeneous elliptic partial differential operator $L$ with constant
complex coefficients and a class of functions (jetdistributions) which
are defined on a (relatively) closed subset of a domain $\Omega$ in $\mathbf{R}^n$ and
which belong locally to a Banach space $V$, we consider the problem of
approximating in the norm of $V$ the functions in this class by ``analytic''
and ``meromorphic'' solutions of the equation $Lu=0$. We establish new Roth,
Arakelyan (including tangential) and Carleman type theorems for a large class
of Banach spaces $V$ and operators $L$. Important applications to boundary
value problems of solutions of homogeneous elliptic partial differential
equations are obtained, including the solution of a generalized Dirichlet
problem.

On Multiple Mixed Interior and Boundary Peak Solutions for Some Singularly Perturbed Neumann Problems
We consider the problem
\begin{equation*}
\begin{cases}
\varepsilon^2 \Delta u  u + f(u) = 0, u > 0 & \mbox{in } \Omega\\
\frac{\partial u}{\partial \nu} = 0 & \mbox{on } \partial\Omega,
\end{cases}
\end{equation*}
where $\Omega$ is a bounded smooth domain in $R^N$, $\ve>0$ is a small
parameter and $f$ is a superlinear, subcritical nonlinearity. It is
known that this equation possesses multiple boundary spike solutions
that concentrate, as $\epsilon$ approaches zero, at multiple critical
points of the mean curvature function $H(P)$, $P \in \partial \Omega$.
It is also proved that this equation has multiple interior spike solutions
which concentrate, as $\ep\to 0$, at {\it sphere packing\/} points in $\Om$.
In this paper, we prove the existence of solutions with multiple spikes
{\it both\/} on the boundary and in the interior. The main difficulty
lies in the fact that the boundary spikes and the interior spikes usually
have different scales of error estimation. We have to choose a special set
of boundary spikes to match the scale of the interior spikes in a
variational approach.

negative answer to a problem of Berestycki, Caffarelli and Nirenberg
