We prove new lower bounds for the energy of sign changing solutions of two different types of autonomous superlinear equations on RN. These bounds increase the energy range for which Palais-Smale sequences of related variational problems have a nontrivial weak limit. The results are obtained by transforming sign changing solutions of low energy into a convenient form and then applying different variants of the moving plane method.

    We consider a parabolic equation with a drift term Δu+b∇u-ut=0. Under the condition divb=0, we prove that solutions possess dramatically better regularity than those provided by standard theory. For example, we prove continuity of solutions when not even boundedness is expected.

    We use the method of multiple scales to study the wobbling kink of the ϕ 4 equation. We show that the amplitude of the wobbling decays very slowly, proportionally to t −1/2, and the wobbler hence turns out to be an extremely long-lived object.

    The paper presents a stable solution to an ill-posed problem of identification of the time-dependent impulsive load acting on a plate (an inverse elastic problem). The time dependence of the deformation at one point of the plate is known from a numerical analysis, where errors occurring in a...
