The paper has been presented at the 12th International Conference on Applications of Computer Algebra, Varna, Bulgaria, June, 2006A MATHEMATICA package for finding Lie symmetries of partial differential equations is presented. The package is designed to create and solve the associated determining system of equations, the full set of solutions of which generates the widest permissible local Lie group of point symmetry transformations. Examples illustrating the functionality of the package's tools...

In this paper, we continue the study of the Raman amplification in plasmas that we initiated in [Colin and Colin, Diff. Int. Eqs. 17 (2004) 297–330; Colin and Colin, J. Comput. Appl. Math. 193 (2006) 535–562]. We point out that the Raman instability gives rise to three components. The first one is collinear to the incident laser pulse and counter propagates. In 2-D, the two other ones make a non-zero angle with the initial pulse and propagate forward. Furthermore they are symmetric with respect...

We prove the existence of cylindrical solutions to the semilinear elliptic problem $-\Delta u+\frac{u}{{\left|y\right|}^{2}}=f\left(u\right)$, $u\in {H}^{1}\left({\mathbb{R}}^{N}\right)$, $u\ge 0$, where $(y,z)\in {\mathbb{R}}^{k}\times {\mathbb{R}}^{N-k}$, $N>k\ge 2$ and $f$ has a double-power behaviour, subcritical at infinity and supercritical near the origin. This result also implies the existence of solitary waves with nonvanishing angular momentum for nonlinear Schr¨odinger and Klein–Gordon equations.

We study the local uniqueness in the Cauchy problem for Schrödinger or heat equations whose principal parts are nonnegative. We show the compact uniqueness under a weak form of pseudo convexity. This makes up for the known results under the conormal pseudo convexity given by Tataru, Hörmander, Robbiano- Zuily and L. T'Joen. Our method is based on a kind of integral transform and a weak form of Carleman estimate for degenerate elliptic operators.

Let d > 0 be a positive real number and n ≥ 1 a positive integer and define the operator ${S}_{d}$ and its associated global maximal operator $S*{*}_{d}$ by $\left({S}_{d}f\right)(x,t)=1/\left(2\pi \right)\u207f{\int}_{\mathbb{R}\u207f}{e}^{ix\xb7\xi}{e}^{{it\left|\xi \right|}^{d}}f\u0302\left(\xi \right)d\xi $, f ∈ (ℝⁿ), x ∈ ℝⁿ, t ∈ ℝ, $(S*{*}_{d}f)\left(x\right)=su{p}_{t\in \mathbb{R}}|1/\left(2\pi \right)\u207f{\int}_{\mathbb{R}\u207f}{e}^{ix\xb7\xi}{e}^{{it\left|\xi \right|}^{d}}f\u0302\left(\xi \right)d\xi |$, f ∈ (ℝⁿ), x ∈ ℝⁿ, where f̂ is the Fourier transform of f and (ℝⁿ) is the Schwartz class of rapidly decreasing functions. If d = 2, ${S}_{d}f$ is the solution to the initial value problem for the free Schrödinger equation (cf. (1.3) in this paper). We prove that for radial functions f ∈ (ℝⁿ), if n ≥ 3, 0 < d ≤ 2, and p ≥ 2n/(n-2), the...

The aim of this work is to establish, from a mathematical point of view, the limit α → +∞ in the system $i{\partial}_{t}E+\nabla (\nabla .E)-{\alpha}^{2}\nabla \times \nabla \times E=-{\left|E\right|}^{2\sigma}E,$ where $E:{\mathbb{R}}^{3}\to {\u2102}^{3}$. This corresponds to an approximation which is made in the context of Langmuir turbulence in plasma Physics. The L2-subcritical σ (that is σ ≤ 2/3) and the H1-subcritical σ (that is σ ≤ 2) are studied. In the physical case σ = 1, the limit is then studied for the ${H}^{1}\left({\mathbb{R}}^{3}\right)$ norm.

This paper is motivated by a gauged Schrödinger equation in dimension 2 including the so-called Chern-Simons term. The study of radial stationary states leads to the nonlocal problem: $-\Delta u\left(x\right)+\left(\omega +\frac{{h}^{2}\left(\right|x\left|\right)}{{\left|x\right|}^{2}}+{\int}_{\left|x\right|}^{+\infty}\frac{h\left(s\right)}{s}{u}^{2}\left(s\right)\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}ds\right)u\left(x\right)={\left|u\left(x\right)\right|}^{p-1}u\left(x\right)$, where $h\left(r\right)=\frac{1}{2}{\int}_{0}^{r}s{u}^{2}\left(s\right)\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}ds$. This problem is the Euler-Lagrange equation of a certain energy functional. In this paper the study of the global behavior of such functional is completed. We show that for $p\in (1,3)$, the functional may be bounded from below or not, depending on $\omega $. Quite surprisingly, the threshold value for $\omega $ is explicit. From...

The effective dynamics of interacting waves for coupled Schrödinger-Korteweg-de Vries equations over a slowly varying random bottom is rigorously studied. One motivation for studying such a system is better understanding the unidirectional motion of interacting surface and internal waves for a fluid system that is formed of two immiscible layers. It was shown recently by Craig-Guyenne-Sulem [1] that in the regime where the internal wave has a large...
