On some elliptic boundary-value problems with discontinuous nonlinearities

Giovanni Anello (2005)

Annales Polonici Mathematici


We establish two existence results for elliptic boundary-value problems with discontinuous nonlinearities. One of them concerns implicit elliptic equations of the form ψ(-Δu) = f(x,u). We emphasize that our assumptions permit the nonlinear term f to be discontinuous with respect to the second variable at each point.

On a comparison principle for a quasilinear elliptic boundary value problem of a nonmonotone type

Michal Křížek, Liping Liu (1996)

Applicationes Mathematicae


A nonlinear elliptic partial differential equation with the Newton boundary conditions is examined. We prove that for greater data we get a greater weak solution. This is the so-called comparison principle. It is applied to a steady-state heat conduction problem in anisotropic magnetic cores of large transformers.
