Content |

The aim of this course is to present some methods for the treatment of nonlinear elliptic problems.I. Preliminaries of Linear Elliptic Equations: Sobolev spaces, Dirichlet's principle, weak solutions, eigenvalues, maximum principle.II. Fixed Point Methods: the operator form of the Dirichlet problem (in $H_{0}^{1}\left( \Omega \right) $); applications of the Banach, Schauder, Krasnoselskii fixed point theorems; application of the Leray-Schauder fixed point theorem.III. Upper and Lower Solutions Method: ordered Banach spaces, normal and regular cones, monotone iterative principles in ordered Banach spaces, upper and lower solutions of the Dirichlet problem. |
