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.

Global WellPosedness and Convergence Results for 3DRegularized Boussinesq System
Analytical study to the regularization of the Boussinesq system is
performed in frequency space using Fourier theory. Existence and
uniqueness of weak solution with minimum regularity requirement are
proved. Convergence results of the unique weak solution of the
regularized Boussinesq system to a weak LerayHopf solution of the
Boussinesq system are established as the regularizing parameter
$\alpha$ vanishes. The proofs are done in the frequency space and use
energy methods, ArselÃ Ascoli compactness theorem and a Friedrichs
like approximation scheme.

Fully Nonlinear Elliptic Equations on General Domains
By means of the Pucci operator, we construct a function $u_0$, which plays
an essential role in our considerations, and give the existence and regularity
theorems for the bounded viscosity solutions of the generalized Dirichlet
problems of second order fully nonlinear elliptic equations on the general
bounded domains, which may be irregular. The approximation method, the accretive
operator technique and the Caffarelli's perturbation theory are used.
