Ground state and multiple solutions for Kirchhoff type equations with critical exponent
In this paper, we consider the following
critical Kirchhoff type equation:
\begin{align*}
\left\{
\begin{array}{lll}

\left(a+b\int_{\Omega}\nabla u^2
\right)\Delta u=Q(x)u^4u + \lambda u^{q1}u,~~\mbox{in}~~\Omega,
\\
u=0,\quad \text{on}\quad \partial \Omega,
\end{array}
\right.
\end{align*}
By using variational methods that are constrained to the Nehari
manifold,
we prove that the above equation has a ground state solution
for the case when $3\lt q\lt 5$.
The relation between the number of maxima of $Q$
and the number of positive solutions for the problem is also
investigated.

New Superquadratic Conditions for Asymptotically Periodic SchrÃ¶dinger Equations
This paper is dedicated to studying the
semilinear SchrÃ¶dinger 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 1periodic
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 superquadratic
condition is obtained,
which is weaker than some well known results.

Eigenvalues of $ \Delta_p \Delta_q $ Under Neumann Boundary Condition
The
eigenvalue problem $\Delta_p u\Delta_q u=\lambdau^{q2}u$
with $p\in(1,\infty)$, $q\in(2,\infty)$, $p\neq q$ subject to
the
corresponding homogeneous Neumann boundary condition is
investigated on a bounded open set with smooth boundary from
$\mathbb{R}^N$ with $N\geq 2$. A careful analysis of this problem leads
us to a complete description of the set of eigenvalues as being
a
precise interval $(\lambda_1, +\infty )$ plus an isolated point
$\lambda =0$. This comprehensive result is strongly related to
our
framework which is complementary to the wellknown case $p=q\neq
2$ for which a full description of the set of eigenvalues is
still
unavailable.

Ground State Solutions of NehariPankov 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}),

\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 NehariPankov 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 $g_i(x, 0)=h_j(x, 0)=0$.

Secondorder Riesz Transforms and Maximal Inequalities Associated with Magnetic SchrÃ¶dinger Operators
Let $A:=(\nablai\vec{a})\cdot(\nablai\vec{a})+V$ be a
magnetic SchrÃ¶dinger operator on $\mathbb{R}^n$,
where $\vec{a}:=(a_1,\dots, a_n)\in L^2_{\mathrm{loc}}(\mathbb{R}^n,\mathbb{R}^n)$
and $0\le V\in L^1_{\mathrm{loc}}(\mathbb{R}^n)$ satisfy some reverse
HÃ¶lder conditions.
Let $\varphi\colon \mathbb{R}^n\times[0,\infty)\to[0,\infty)$ be such that
$\varphi(x,\cdot)$ for any given $x\in\mathbb{R}^n$ is an Orlicz function,
$\varphi(\cdot,t)\in {\mathbb A}_{\infty}(\mathbb{R}^n)$ for all $t\in (0,\infty)$
(the class of uniformly Muckenhoupt weights) and its uniformly critical upper type index
$I(\varphi)\in(0,1]$. In this article, the authors prove that
secondorder Riesz transforms $VA^{1}$ and
$(\nablai\vec{a})^2A^{1}$ are bounded from the
MusielakOrliczHardy space $H_{\varphi,\,A}(\mathbb{R}^n)$, associated with $A$,
to the MusielakOrlicz space $L^{\varphi}(\mathbb{R}^n)$. Moreover, the authors
establish the boundedness of $VA^{1}$ on $H_{\varphi, A}(\mathbb{R}^n)$. As applications, some
maximal inequalities associated with $A$ in the scale of $H_{\varphi,
A}(\mathbb{R}^n)$ are obtained.

First Variations of the Best Sobolev Trace Constant with Respect to the Domain
In this paper we study the best constant of the Sobolev trace
embedding $H^{1}(\Omega)\to L^{2}(\partial\Omega)$, where $\Omega$
is a bounded smooth domain in $\RR^N$. We find a formula for the
first variation of the best constant with respect to the domain.
As a consequence, we prove that the ball is a critical domain when
we consider deformations that preserve volume.

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.

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

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.

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.
