    Necessary Conditions of Optimality (NCO) play an important role in the characterization of and search for solutions of Optimization Problems. They enable us to identify a small set of candidates to local minimizers among the overall set of admissible solutions. However, in constrained...

    An optimization approach to solving a convex finite-dimensional variational inequality with nonpotential operator is examined. It is shown how to construct an optimization problem equivalent to the variational inequality in the space of the original variables. A first-order algorithm to solve...

    We discuss the higher dimensional Bonnesen-style inequalities. Though there are many Bonnesen-style inequalities for domains in the Euclidean plane ℝ few results for general domain in ℝ ( n ≥ 3) are known. The results obtained in this paper are for general domains, convex or...

    We obtain a priori estimates for solutions to the prescribed scalar curvature equation on S 3. The usual non-degeneracy assumption on the curvature function is replaced by a new condition, which is necessary and sufficient for the existence of a priori estimates, when the curvature function is a...

    A droplet solution characterizes the lamellar phase of a diblock copolymer when the two composing monomers maintain a skewed ratio. We study the threshold case where the free energy of a droplet solution is comparable to the free energy of the constant solution. Using a Lyapunov-Schmidt...

    In this paper, we use the method of calculus of variations to develop an existence theory for the steady state solutions of a nonlinear Schrödinger equation modeling light waves propagating in a photorefractive crystal. We show via direct minimization and mountain-pass argument that there...

    In the paper time dependent variational bounds are derived based on Extended Hashin-Shtrikman variational principles. Direct calculation leads to explicit formulas to be presented in the text. For various mechanical properties easy coding in Excel, say, can be used and verification of accuracy...

    Necessary conditions of extremum (from the times of Fermat and Lagrange till our times) for extremal problems where smoothness is interlaced with convexity, and some type of regularity takes place, correspond to a unique general principle, which is due to Lagrange. This report is devoted to the...

    We continue to study the asymptotic behavior of least energy solutions to the following fourth order elliptic problem ( E p ): $$(E_p) \left \{ \begin{array}{ll} \Delta^2 u = u^p & \hbox{in} \; \Omega, \\ u > 0 & \hbox{in} \; \Omega, \\ u |_{\partial\Omega} = \Delta u |_{\partial\Omega} = 0...
