ABSTRACT
An improved Poincar� inequality and validity of the Palais-Smale condition are investigated for the energy functional $$\mathcal{J}_{\lambda}(u) = \frac{1}{p} \int\limits_{\Omega}|\nabla u|^{p} {\rm d}x - \frac{\lambda}{p} \int\limits_{\Omega} |u|^{p} {\rm d}x - \int\limits_{\Omega} fu {\rm d}x$$ on $$W_{0}^{1,p}(\Omega)$$ , 1 < p < 8, where O is a bounded domain in $$\mathbb{R}^{N}$$ , $$\lambda\in \mathbb{R}$$ is a spectral (control) parameter, and $$f \in L^{\infty}(\Omega)$$ is a given function, $$f \not\equiv 0$$ in O. Analysis is focused on the case ? = ?1, where -?1 is the first eigenvalue of the Dirichlet p-Laplacian ? p on $$W_{0}^{1,p}(\Omega)$$ , ?1 > 0, and on the �quadratization� of $$\mathcal{J}_{\lambda_1}$$ within an arbitrarily small cone in $$W_{0}^{1,p}(\Omega)$$ around the axis spanned by $$\varphi_1$$ , where $$\varphi_1$$ stands for the first eigenfunction of ? p associated with -?1.

    The asymptotic behaviour of the second eigenvalue of the p-Laplacian operator as p goes to 1 is investigated. The limit setting depends only on the geometry of the domain. In the particular case of a planar disc, it is possible to show that the second eigenfunctions are nonradial if p is close...

Also, some applications of this interlacing property are explored and...

    The effects of confinement on the order-disorder transition of diblock copolymer melts are studied theoretically. Confinements are realized by restricting diblock copolymers in finite spaces with different geometries (slabs, cylinders, and spheres). Within the random phase approximation, the...
