Quantum Ergodicity of Boundary Values of Eigenfunctions: A Control Theory Approach
Consider $M$, a bounded domain in ${\mathbb R}^d$, which is a
Riemanian manifold with piecewise smooth boundary and suppose that the
billiard associated to the geodesic flow reflecting on the boundary
according to the laws of geometric optics is ergodic.
We prove that the boundary value of the eigenfunctions of the Laplace
operator with reasonable boundary conditions are asymptotically
equidistributed in the boundary, extending previous results by
G\'erard and Leichtnam as well as Hassell and Zelditch,
obtained under the additional assumption of the convexity of~$M$.

Remarques sur l'enlacement en thÃ©orie des points critiques pour des fonctionnelles continues
Dans cet article, \`a partir de la notion d'enlacement introduite
dans ~\cite{F} entre des paires d'ensembles $(B,A)$ et $(Q,P)$,
nous \'etablissons l'existence d'un point critique d'une
fonctionnelle continue sur un espace m\'etrique lorsqu'une de ces
paires enlace l'autre. Des renseignements sur la localisation du
point critique sont aussi obtenus. Ces r\'esultats conduisent \`a
une g\'en\'eralisation du th\'eor\`eme des trois points critiques.
Finalement, des applications \`a des probl\`emes aux limites pour
une \'equation quasilin\'eaire elliptique sont pr\'esent\'ees.

Characterizing TwoDimensional Maps Whose Jacobians Have Constant Eigenvalues
Recent papers have shown that $C^1$ maps $F\colon \mathbb{R}^2
\rightarrow \mathbb{R}^2$
whose Jacobians have constant eigenvalues can be completely
characterized if either the eigenvalues are equal or $F$ is a
polynomial. Specifically, $F=(u,v)$ must take the form
\begin{gather*}
u = ax + by + \beta \phi(\alpha x + \beta y) + e \\
v = cx + dy  \alpha \phi(\alpha x + \beta y) + f
\end{gather*}
for some constants $a$, $b$, $c$, $d$, $e$, $f$, $\alpha$, $\beta$ and
a $C^1$ function $\phi$ in one variable. If, in addition, the function
$\phi$ is not affine, then
\begin{equation}
\alpha\beta (da) + b\alpha^2  c\beta^2 = 0.
\end{equation}
This paper shows how these theorems cannot be extended by constructing
a realanalytic map whose Jacobian eigenvalues are $\pm 1/2$ and does
not fit the previous form. This example is also used to construct
nonobvious solutions to nonlinear PDEs, including the MongeAmp\`ere
equation.

Growth Estimates on Positive Solutions of the Equation $\Delta u+K u^{\frac{n+2}{n2}}=0$ 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 $g=u^{4/(n2)}g_o$
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 $L^{2n/(n2)}$norm
of the solution and show that it has slow decay.

The Dynamics of Localized Solutions of Nonlocal ReactionDiffusion Equations
Many classes of singularly perturbed reactiondiffusion equations
possess localized solutions where the gradient of the solution is
large only in the vicinity of certain points or interfaces in the
domain. The problems of this type that are considered are an
interface propagation model from materials science and an
activatorinhibitor model of morphogenesis. These two models are
formulated as nonlocal partial differential equations. Results
concerning the existence of equilibria, their stability, and the
dynamical behavior of localized structures in the interior and on
the boundary of the domain are surveyed for these two models. By
examining the spectrum associated with the linearization of these
problems around certain canonical solutions, it is shown that the
nonlocal term can lead to the existence of an exponentially small
principal eigenvalue for the linearized problem. This eigenvalue
is then responsible for an exponentially slow, or metastable,
motion of the localized structure.

Eigenfunction Decay For the Neumann Laplacian on HornLike Domains
The growth properties at infinity for eigenfunctions corresponding to
embedded eigenvalues of the Neumann Laplacian on hornlike domains
are studied. For domains that pinch at polynomial rate, it is shown
that the eigenfunctions vanish at infinity faster than the reciprocal
of any polynomial. For a class of domains that pinch at an exponential
rate, weaker, $L^2$ bounds are proven. A corollary is that eigenvalues
can accumulate only at zero or infinity.

Heat Kernels of Lorentz Cones
We obtain an explicit formula for heat kernels of Lorentz cones, a
family of classical symmetric cones. By this formula, the heat
kernel of a Lorentz cone is expressed by a function of time $t$ and
two eigenvalues of an element in the cone. We obtain also upper and
lower bounds for the heat kernels of Lorentz cones.

On the solvability of a Neumann boundary value problem at resonance
We study the existence of solutions of the semilinear equations (1)
$\triangle u + g(x,u)=h$, ${\partial u \over \partial n} = 0$ on
$\partial \Omega$ in which the nonlinearity $g$ may grow
superlinearly in $u$ in one of directions $u \to \infty$ and $u \to
\infty$, and (2) $\triangle u + g(x,u)=h$, ${\partial u \over
\partial n} = 0$ on $\partial \Omega$ in which the nonlinear term $g$
may grow superlinearly in $u$ as $u \to \infty$. The purpose of this
paper is to obtain solvability theorems for (1) and (2) when the
LandesmanLazer condition does not hold. More precisely, we require
that $h$ may satisfy $\int g^\delta_ (x) \, dx < \int h(x) \, dx = 0<
\int g^\gamma_+ (x)\,dx$, where $\gamma, \delta$ are arbitrarily
nonnegative constants, $g^\gamma_+ (x) = \lim_{u \to \infty} \inf
g(x,u) u^\gamma$ and $g^\delta_ (x)=\lim_{u \to \infty} \sup
g(x,u)u^\delta$. The proofs are based upon degree theoretic arguments.

Nonexistence results of positive entire solutions for quasilinear elliptic inequalities
This paper treats the quasilinear elliptic inequality
$$
\div (Du^{m2}Du) \geq p(x)u^{\sigma},
\quad x \in \Rs^N,
$$
where $N \geq 2$, $m > 1$, $ \sigma > m  1$, and $p \colon \Rs^N
\rightarrow (0, \infty)$ is continuous. Sufficient conditions are
given for this inequality to have no positive entire solutions. When
$p$ has radial symmetry, the existence of positive entire solutions can
be characterized by our results and some known results.

Cauchy's problem for harmonic functions with entire data on a sphere
We give an elementary potentialtheoretic proof of a theorem of
G.~Johnsson: all solutions of Cauchy's problems for the Laplace
equations with an entire data on a sphere extend harmonically to
the whole space ${\bf R}^N$ except, perhaps, for the center of the
sphere.
