A direct method of moving planes for fractional Laplacian equations in the unit ball

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • In this paper, we employ a direct method of moving planes for the fractional Laplacian equation in the unit ball. Instead of using the conventional extension method introduced by Caffarelli and Silvestre [6], Chen, Li and Li developed a direct method of moving planes for the fractional Laplacian [8]. Inspired by this new method, in this paper we deal with the semilinear pseudo -differential equation in the unit ball directly. We first review key ingredients needed in the method of moving planes in a bounded domain, such as the narrow region principle for the fractional Laplacian. Then, by using this new method, we obtain the radial symmetry and monotonicity of positive solutions for some interesting semi-linear equations.
