The e-book is meant to be an advent to serious aspect idea and its purposes to differential equations. even supposing the comparable fabric are available in different books, the authors of this quantity have had the next pursuits in brain:

- to provide a survey of latest minimax theorems,
- to offer purposes to elliptic differential equations in bounded domain names,
- to think about the twin variational approach for issues of non-stop and discontinuous nonlinearities,
- to provide a few parts of severe aspect concept for in the community Lipschitz functionals and provides purposes to fourth-order differential equations with discontinuous nonlinearities,
- to check homoclinic recommendations of differential equations through the variational equipment.

The contents of the publication include seven chapters, every one divided into a number of sections. *Audience:* Graduate and post-graduate scholars in addition to experts within the fields of differential equations, variational equipment and optimization.

38) r = bE C([O, 1], X) : ,(0) = 0,,(1) = e}. 39) Geometrically, when X = R2 the assumptions (i) and (ii) mean that the origin lies in a valley surrounded by a "mountain" rf = {(x, f (x)) E R3 : x E R2} . So, there must exist a mountain pass joining (0,0) and (e, f (e)) that contains a critical value. 18 as the following example shows. 3. 18 but does not satisfy (PS) condition and its unique critical point is (0,0). Proof. The point (0,0) is a strict local minima and the unique critical point. 38), is also satisfied.

If (i) holds, since Bp (0) EN we have b= sup inf NENxEoN f(x)~c= inf XESp(D) f(x»O. 19. Let (ii) holds and take rand R such that 0 < r < R < f. Let (Xj)j be a minimizing sequence of f on Sp where p is such that r < p < R. 3, applied to if if Ilxll ~ R, Ilxll ::; R. f (x), there exists Yj E X f(Yj) ::; such that f(Xj), 1 Ilxj - Yjll ::; VJ' and - - f(Yj) ::; f(x) 1 + VJllx - Yjll, Vv E X. 43) as t -+ 0 we obtain that 1 11f' (Yj) II ::; VJ' Since 'I/J E \[! 44) it follows (11Yjll) 11f' (Yj) II -+ O.
