This paper studies second order elliptic equations in both divergence and non-divergence forms with measurable complex valued principle coefficients and measurable complex valued potentials. The PDE operators can be considered as generalized Schrödinger operators. Under some sufficient conditions, we prove existence, uniqueness, and regularity estimates in Sobolev spaces for solutions to the equations. We particularly show that the non-zero imaginary parts of the potentials are the main mechanisms that control the solutions. Our results can be considered as limiting absorption principle for Schrödinger operators with measurable coefficients and they could be useful in applications. The approach is based on the perturbation technique that freezes the potentials. The results of the paper not only generalize known results but also provide a key ingredient for the study of
In the present paper, a solution to the 33rd Palis-Pugh problem for gradient-like diffeomorphisms of a two-dimensional sphere is obtained. It is precisely shown that with respect to the stable isotopic connectedness relation there exists countable many of equivalence classes of such systems. 43 words.
We prove global existence and modified scattering for the solutions of the Cauchy problem to the fractional Korteweg-de Vries equation with cubic nonlinearity for small, smooth and localized initial data.
In this paper, we study the classical problem of the wind in the steady atmospheric Ekman layer with constant eddy viscosity. Different from the well-known homogeneous system in [
Following Frantzikinakis' approach on averages for Hardy field functions of different growth, we add to the topic by studying the corresponding averages for tempered functions, a class which also contains functions that oscillate and is in general more restrictive to deal with. Our main result is the existence and the explicit expression of the
This paper deals with a fully parabolic inter-species chemotaxis-competition system with indirect signal production

We extend to a specific class of systems of nonlinear Schrödinger equations (NLS) the theory of asymptotic stability of ground states already proved for the scalar NLS. Here the key point is the choice of an adequate system of modulation coordinates and the novelty, compared to the scalar NLS, is the fact that the group of symmetries of the system is non-commutative.
We study the properties of
The present paper is on the existence and behaviour of solutions for a class of semilinear parabolic equations, defined on a bounded smooth domain and assuming a nonlinearity asymptotically linear at infinity. The behavior of the solutions when the initial data varies in the phase space is analyzed. Global solutions are obtained, which may be bounded or blow-up in infinite time (grow-up). The main tools are the comparison principle and variational methods. In particular, the Nehari manifold is used to separate the phase space into regions of initial data where uniform boundedness or grow-up behavior of the semiflow may occur. Additionally, some attention is paid to initial data at high energy level.
We consider a class of random mechanical systems called random billiards to study the problem of quantifying the irreversibility of nonequilibrium macroscopic systems. In a random billiard model, a point particle evolves by free motion through the interior of a spatial domain, and reflects according to a reflection operator, specified in the model by a Markov transition kernel, upon collision with the boundary of the domain. We derive a formula for entropy production rate that applies to a general class of random billiard systems. This formula establishes a relation between the purely mathematical concept of entropy production rate and textbook thermodynamic entropy, recovering in particular Clausius' formulation of the second law of thermodynamics. We also study an explicit class of examples whose reflection operator, referred to as the Maxwell-Smoluchowski thermostat, models systems with boundary thermostats kept at possibly different temperatures. We prove that, under certain mild regularity conditions, the class of models are uniformly ergodic Markov chains and derive formulas for the stationary distribution and entropy production rate in terms of geometric and thermodynamic parameters.
We will extend the topological Gromov-Hausdorff stability [
We prove sharp regularity estimates for solutions of obstacle type problems driven by a class of degenerate fully nonlinear operators. More specifically, we consider viscosity solutions of
We prove the global solutions to the Korteweg system without smallness condition imposed on the vertical component of the incompressible part of the velocity. The weighted Chemin-Lerner-norm technique which is well-known for the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations is introduced to derive the a priori estimates. As a byproduct, we obtain the optimal time decay rates of the solutions by using the pure energy argument (independent of spectral analysis). In contrast to the compressible Navier-Stokes system, the time-decay estimates are more accurate owing to smoothing effect from the Korteweg tensor.
In this paper, we consider the quadratic nonlinear Schrödinger system in three space dimensions. Our aim is to obtain sharp scattering criteria. Because of the mass-subcritical nature, it is difficult to do so in terms of conserved quantities. The corresponding single equation is studied by the second author and a sharp scattering criterion is established by introducing a distance from a trivial scattering solution, the zero solution. By the structure of the nonlinearity we are dealing with, the system admits a scattering solution which is a pair of the zero function and a linear Schrödinger flow. Taking this fact into account, we introduce a new optimizing quantity and give a sharp scattering criterion in terms of it.
We develop a theory of mean-square random invariant manifolds for mean-square random dynamical systems generated by stochastic differential equations. This theory is applicable to stochastic partial differential equations driven by nonlinear noise. The existence of mean-square random invariant unstable manifolds is proved by the Lyapunov-Perron method based on a backward stochastic differential equation involving the conditional expectation with respect to a filtration. The existence of mean-square random stable invariant sets is also established but the existence of mean-square random stable invariant manifolds remains open.
We study the global picture of the metric entropy on the space of expanding Blaschke products. We first construct a smooth path in the space tending to a parabolic Blaschke product. We prove that the metric entropy on this path tends to 0 as the path tends to this parabolic Blaschke product. It turns out that the limiting parabolic Blaschke product on the unit circle is conjugate to the famous Boole map on the real line. Thus we can give a new explanation of Boole's formula discovered more than one hundred and fifty years ago. We modify the first smooth path to get a second smooth path in the space of expanding Blaschke products. The second smooth path tends to a totally degenerate map. We see that the first and second smooth paths have completely different asymptotic behaviors near the boundary of the space of expanding Blaschke products. However, they represent the same smooth path in the space of all smooth conjugacy classes of expanding Blaschke products. We use this to give a complete description of the global graph of the metric entropy on the space of expanding Blaschke products. We prove that the global graph looks like a bell. It is the first result to show a global picture of the metric entropy on a space of hyperbolic dynamical systems. We apply our results to the measure-theoretic entropy of a quadratic polynomial with respect to its Gibbs measure on its Julia set. We prove that the measure-theoretic entropy on the main cardioid of the Mandelbrot set is a real analytic function and asymptotically zero near the boundary.
We study the existence of symmetric and asymmetric nodal solutions for the sublinear Moore-Nehari differential equation,
We consider nonlinear Schrödinger equations with either power-type or Hartree nonlinearity in the presence of an external potential. We show that for long-range nonlinearities, solutions cannot exhibit scattering to solitary waves or more general localized waves. This extends the well-known results concerning non-existence of non-trivial scattering states for long-range nonlinearities.
