This paper is devoted to the study of traveling waves for monotone evolution systems of bistable type. In an abstract setting, we establish the existence of traveling waves for discrete and continuous-time monotone semiflows in homogeneous and periodic habitats. The results are then extended to monotone semiflows with weak compactness. We also apply the theory to four classes of evolution systems.

We study a higher order parabolic partial differential equation that arises in the context of condensed matter physics. It is a fourth order semilinear equation which nonlinearity is the determinant of the Hessian matrix of the solution. We consider this model in a bounded domain of the real plane and study its stationary solutions both when the geometry of this domain is arbitrary and when it is the unit ball and the solution is radially symmetric. We also consider the initial-boundary value problem...

We prove a Liouville type theorem for sign-changing radial solutions of a subcritical semilinear heat equation ${u}_{t}=\Delta u+{\left|u\right|}^{p-1}u$. We use this theorem to derive a priori bounds, decay estimates, and initial and final blow-up rates for radial solutions of rather general semilinear parabolic equations whose nonlinearities have a subcritical polynomial growth. Further consequences on the existence of steady states and time-periodic solutions are also shown.

Our aim in this paper is to study the existence of solutions to a phase-field system based on the Maxwell-Cattaneo heat conduction law, with a logarithmic nonlinearity. In particular, we prove, in one and two space dimensions, the existence of a solution which is separated from the singularities of the nonlinear term.

We study nonlinear diffusion problems of the form ${u}_{t}={u}_{xx}+f\left(u\right)$ with free boundaries. Such problems may be used to describe the spreading of a biological or chemical species, with the free boundary representing the expanding front. For special $f\left(u\right)$ of the Fisher-KPP type, the problem was investigated by Du and Lin [DL]. Here we consider much more general nonlinear terms. For any $f\left(u\right)$ which is ${C}^{1}$ and satisfies $f\left(0\right)=0$, we show that the omega limit set $\omega \left(u\right)$ of every bounded positive solution is determined by a stationary solution....
