New super-quadratic conditions for asymptotically periodic Schrödinger equation
This paper is dedicated to studying the semilinear Schrödinger equation $$ \left\{ \begin{array}{ll} -\triangle u+V(x)u=f(x, u), \ \ \ \ x\in {\mathbf{R}}^{N}, \\ u\in H^{1}({\mathbf{R}}^{N}), \end{array} \right. $$ where $f$ is a superlinear, subcritical nonlinearity. It focuses on the case where $V(x)=V_0(x)+V_1(x)$, $V_0\in C(\mathbf{R}^N)$, $V_0(x)$ is 1-periodic in each of $x_1, x_2, \ldots, x_N$ and $\sup[\sigma(-\triangle +V_0)\cap (-\infty, 0)]\lt 0\lt \inf[\sigma(-\triangle +V_0)\cap (0, \infty)]$, $V_1\in C(\mathbf{R}^N)$ and $\lim_{|x|\to\infty}V_1(x)=0$. A new super-quadratic condition is obtained, which is weaker than some well known results.

Characterization of Low-pass Filters on Local Fields of Positive Characteristic
In this article, we give necessary and sufficient conditions on a function to be a low-pass filter on a local field $K$ of positive characteristic associated to the scaling function for multiresolution analysis of $L^2(K)$. We use probability and martingale methods to provide such a characterization.

Using variational methods coupled with suitable truncation and comparison techniques, we prove a bifurcation type result describing the set of positive solutions as the parameter varies.

Infinitely Many Rotationally Symmetric Solutions to a Class of Semilinear Laplace-Beltrami Equations on Spheres
We show that a class of semilinear Laplace-Beltrami equations on the unit sphere in $\mathbb{R}^n$ has infinitely many rotationally symmetric solutions. The solutions to these equations are the solutions to a two point boundary value problem for a singular ordinary differential equation. We prove the existence of such solutions using energy and phase plane analysis. We derive a Pohozaev-type identity in order to prove that the energy to an associated initial value problem tends to infinity as the energy at the singularity tends to infinity. The nonlinearity is allowed to grow as fast as $|s|^{p-1}s$ for $|s|$ large with $1 \lt p \lt (n+5)/(n-3)$.

Keywords:Laplace-Beltrami operator, semilinear equation, rotational solution, superlinear nonlinearity, sub-super critical nonlinearity

Ground State Solutions of Nehari-Pankov Type for a Superlinear Hamiltonian Elliptic System on ${\mathbb{R}}^{N}$
This paper is concerned with the following elliptic system of Hamiltonian type \[ \left\{ \begin{array}{ll} -\triangle u+V(x)u=W_{v}(x, u, v), \ \ \ \ x\in {\mathbb{R}}^{N}, \\ -\triangle v+V(x)v=W_{u}(x, u, v), \ \ \ \ x\in {\mathbb{R}}^{N}, \\ u, v\in H^{1}({\mathbb{R}}^{N}), \end{array} \right. \] where the potential $V$ is periodic and $0$ lies in a gap of the spectrum of $-\Delta+V$, $W(x, s, t)$ is periodic in $x$ and superlinear in $s$ and $t$ at infinity. We develop a direct approach to find ground state solutions of Nehari-Pankov type for the above system. Especially, our method is applicable for the case when \[ W(x, u, v)=\sum_{i=1}^{k}\int_{0}^{|\alpha_iu+\beta_iv|}g_i(x, t)t\mathrm{d}t +\sum_{j=1}^{l}\int_{0}^{\sqrt{u^2+2b_juv+a_jv^2}}h_j(x, t)t\mathrm{d}t, \] where $\alpha_i, \beta_i, a_j, b_j\in \mathbb{R}$ with $\alpha_i^2+\beta_i^2\ne 0$ and $a_j\gt b_j^2$, $g_i(x, t)$ and $h_j(x, t)$ are nondecreasing in $t\in \mathbb{R}^{+}$ for every $x\in \mathbb{R}^N$ and $g_i(x, 0)=h_j(x, 0)=0$.

Periodic Solutions of Almost Linear Volterra Integro-dynamic Equation on Periodic Time Scales
Using Krasnoselskii's fixed point theorem, we deduce the existence of periodic solutions of nonlinear system of integro-dynamic equations on periodic time scales. These equations are studied under a set of assumptions on the functions involved in the equations. The equations will be called almost linear when these assumptions hold. The results of this papers are new for the continuous and discrete time scales.

Eigenvalue Approach to Even Order System Periodic Boundary Value Problems
We study an even order system boundary value problem with periodic boundary conditions. By establishing the existence of a positive eigenvalue of an associated linear system Sturm-Liouville problem, we obtain new conditions for the boundary value problem to have a positive solution. Our major tools are the Krein-Rutman theorem for linear spectra and the fixed point index theory for compact operators.

Three Fixed Point Theorems: Periodic Solutions of a Volterra Type Integral Equation with Infinite Heredity
In this paper we study the existence of periodic solutions of a Volterra type integral equation with infinite heredity. Banach fixed point theorem, Krasnosel'skii's fixed point theorem, and a combination of Krasnosel'skii's and Schaefer's fixed point theorems are employed in the analysis. The combination theorem of Krasnosel'skii and Schaefer requires an a priori bound on all solutions. We employ Liapunov's direct method to obtain such an a priori bound. In the process, we compare these theorems in terms of assumptions and outcomes.

On Some Stochastic Perturbations of Semilinear Evolution Equations
We consider semilinear evolution equations with some locally Lipschitz nonlinearities, perturbed by Banach space valued, continuous, and adapted stochastic process. We show that under some assumptions there exists a solution to the equation. Using the result we show that there exists a mild, continuous, global solution to a semilinear Itô equation with locally Lipschitz nonlinearites. An example of the equation is given.

Nonlinear Multipoint Boundary Value Problems for Second Order Differential Equations
In this paper we shall discuss nonlinear multipoint boundary value problems for second order differential equations when deviating arguments depend on the unknown solution. Sufficient conditions under which such problems have extremal and quasi-solutions are given. The problem of when a unique solution exists is also investigated. To obtain existence results, a monotone iterative technique is used. Two examples are added to verify theoretical results.

Positive Solutions of the Falkner--Skan Equation Arising in the Boundary Layer Theory
The well-known Falkner--Skan equation is one of the most important equations in laminar boundary layer theory and is used to describe the steady two-dimensional flow of a slightly viscous incompressible fluid past wedge shaped bodies of angles related to $\lambda\pi/2$, where $\lambda\in \mathbb R$ is a parameter involved in the equation. It is known that there exists $\lambda^{*}<0$ such that the equation with suitable boundary conditions has at least one positive solution for each $\lambda\ge \lambda^{*}$ and has no positive solutions for $\lambda<\lambda^{*}$. The known numerical result shows $\lambda^{*}=-0.1988$. In this paper, $\lambda^{*}\in [-0.4,-0.12]$ is proved analytically by establishing a singular integral equation which is equivalent to the Falkner--Skan equation. The equivalence result provides new techniques to study properties and existence of solutions of the Falkner--Skan equation.

Existence of Positive Solutions for Nonlinear Noncoercive Hemivariational Inequalities
In this paper we investigate the existence of positive solutions for nonlinear elliptic problems driven by the $p$-Laplacian with a nonsmooth potential (hemivariational inequality). Under asymptotic conditions that make the Euler functional indefinite and incorporate in our framework the asymptotically linear problems, using a variational approach based on nonsmooth critical point theory, we obtain positive smooth solutions. Our analysis also leads naturally to multiplicity results.

Growth Estimates on Positive Solutions of the Equation $\Delta u+K u^{\frac{n+2}{n-2}}=0$ in $\R^n$
We construct unbounded positive $C^2$-solutions of the equation $\Delta u + K u^{(n + 2)/(n - 2)} = 0$ in $\R^n$ (equipped with Euclidean metric $g_o$) such that $K$ is bounded between two positive numbers in $\R^n$, the conformal metric $g=u^{4/(n-2)}g_o$ is complete, and the volume growth of $g$ can be arbitrarily fast or reasonably slow according to the constructions. By imposing natural conditions on $u$, we obtain growth estimate on the $L^{2n/(n-2)}$-norm of the solution and show that it has slow decay.

$D$-spaces and resolution
A space $X$ is a $D$-space if, for every neighborhood assignment $f$ there is a closed discrete set $D$ such that $\bigcup{f(D)}=X$. In this paper we give some necessary conditions and some sufficient conditions for a resolution of a topological space to be a $D$-space. In particular, if a space $X$ is resolved at each $x\in X$ into a $D$-space $Y_x$ by continuous mappings $f_x\colon X-\{{x}\} \rightarrow Y_x$, then the resolution is a $D$-space if and only if $\bigcup{\{{x}\}}\times \Bd(Y_x)$ is a $D$-space.
