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|^{q-1}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.

Classification of solutions for harmonic functions with Neumann boundary value
In this paper, we classify all solutions of \[ \left\{ \begin{array}{rcll} -\Delta u &=& 0 \quad &\text{ in }\mathbb{R}^{2}_{+}, \\ \dfrac{\partial u}{\partial t}&=&-c|x|^{\beta}e^{u} \quad &\text{ on }\partial \mathbb{R}^{2}_{+} \backslash \{0\}, \\ \end{array} \right. \] with the finite conditions \[ \int_{\partial \mathbb{R}^{2}_{+}}|x|^{\beta}e^{u}ds \lt C, \qquad \sup\limits_{\overline{\mathbb{R}^{2}_{+}}}{u(x)}\lt C. \] Here, $c$ is a positive number and $\beta \gt -1$.

New Super-quadratic Conditions for Asymptotically Periodic Schrödinger Equations
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.

Eigenvalues of $ -\Delta_p -\Delta_q $ Under Neumann Boundary Condition
The eigenvalue problem $-\Delta_p u-\Delta_q u=\lambda|u|^{q-2}u$ 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 well-known case $p=q\neq 2$ for which a full description of the set of eigenvalues is still unavailable.

Existence of Multiple Solutions for a $p$-Laplacian System in $\textbf{R}^{N}$ with Sign-changing Weight Functions
In this paper, we consider the quasi-linear elliptic problem \[ \left\{ \begin{aligned} & -M \left(\int_{\mathbb{R}^{N}}|x|^{-ap}|\nabla u|^{p}dx \right){\rm div} \left(|x|^{-ap}|\nabla u|^{p-2}\nabla u \right) \\ & \qquad=\frac{\alpha}{\alpha+\beta}H(x)|u|^{\alpha-2}u|v|^{\beta}+\lambda h_{1}(x)|u|^{q-2}u, \\ & -M \left(\int_{\mathbb{R}^{N}}|x|^{-ap}|\nabla v|^{p}dx \right){\rm div} \left(|x|^{-ap}|\nabla v|^{p-2}\nabla v \right) \\ & \qquad=\frac{\beta}{\alpha+\beta}H(x)|v|^{\beta-2}v|u|^{\alpha}+\mu h_{2}(x)|v|^{q-2}v, \\ &u(x)\gt 0,\quad v(x)\gt 0, \quad x\in \mathbb{R}^{N} \end{aligned} \right. \] where $\lambda, \mu\gt 0$, $1\lt p\lt N$, $1\lt q\lt p\lt p(\tau+1)\lt \alpha+\beta\lt p^{*}=\frac{Np}{N-p}$, $0\leq a\lt \frac{N-p}{p}$, $a\leq b\lt a+1$, $d=a+1-b\gt 0$, $M(s)=k+l s^{\tau}$, $k\gt 0$, $l, \tau\geq0$ and the weight $H(x), h_{1}(x), h_{2}(x)$ are continuous functions which change sign in $\mathbb{R}^{N}$. We will prove that the problem has at least two positive solutions by using the Nehari manifold and the fibering maps associated with the Euler functional for this problem.

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

Second-order Riesz Transforms and Maximal Inequalities Associated with Magnetic Schrödinger Operators
Let $A:=-(\nabla-i\vec{a})\cdot(\nabla-i\vec{a})+V$ be a magnetic Schrödinger 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 Hölder 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 second-order Riesz transforms $VA^{-1}$ and $(\nabla-i\vec{a})^2A^{-1}$ are bounded from the Musielak-Orlicz-Hardy space $H_{\varphi,\,A}(\mathbb{R}^n)$, associated with $A$, to the Musielak-Orlicz 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.

Remarques sur l'enlacement en théorie 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 quasi-lin\'eaire elliptique sont pr\'esent\'ees.

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.

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 non-linearity $g$ 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 Landesman-Lazer 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 $$ \div (|Du|^{m-2}Du) \geq p(x)u^{\sigma}, \quad x \in \Rs^N, $$ 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.
