ABSTRACT: We establish existence of a positive solution to the stationary nonlinear Schrödinger equation Δu+V(x)u=f(u), u∈H¹(R^{N}), in situations where this problem does not have a ground state. We consider general superlinear nonlinearities and asymptotically linear ones, as well.

ABSTRACT: We consider the nonlinear SchrÖdinger equation Δu + V(x)u = f (x, u), x ∈ RN, where V is invariant under an orthogonal involution and converges to a positive constant as x → +∞ and the nonlinearity f is asymptotically linear at infinity. Existence of a positive solution, as well as some results on the existence of a class of signchanging solutions is presented. The new idea is to use the projection on the Pohozaev manifold associated with the problem at infinity in order to show that a minmax energy level is in the appropriate range for compactness.Advanced Nonlinear Studies 02/2015; 15(1):191219. · 0.92 Impact Factor  [Show abstract] [Hide abstract]

Article: Singularly perturbed elliptic problems with nonautonomous asymptotically linear nonlinearities
[Show abstract] [Hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: We consider a class of singularly perturbed elliptic problems with nonautonomous asymptotically linear nonlinearities. The dependence on the spatial coordinates comes from the presence of a potential and of a function representing a saturation effect. We investigate the existence of nontrivial nonnegative solutions concentrating around local minima of both the potential and of the saturation function. Necessary conditions to locate the possible concentration points are also given.Nonlinear Analysis 05/2014; 116. DOI:10.1016/j.na.2014.09.030 · 1.33 Impact Factor  [Show abstract] [Hide abstract]

ABSTRACT: We consider the nonlinear Schrödinger equation Du + V (x)u = K(x)u3/(1 + u2)\Delta{u} + V (x)u = K(x)u^3/(1 + u^2) in \mathbb RN{\mathbb {R}^N} , and assume that V and K are invariant under an orthogonal involution. Moreover, V and K converge to positive constants V ∞ and K ∞, as x → ∞. We present some results on the existence of a particular type of sign changing solution, which changes sign exactly once. The basic tool employed here is the Concentration–Compactness Principle and the interaction between translated solutions of the corresponding autonomous problem.

ABSTRACT: Orbital stability property for weakly coupled nonlinear Schr\"odinger equations is investigated. Different families of orbitally stable standing waves solutions will be found, generated by different classes of solutions of the associated elliptic problem. In particular, orbitally stable standing waves can be generated by least action solutions, but also by solutions with one trivial component whether or not they are ground states. Moreover, standing waves with components propagating with the same frequencies are orbitally stable if generated by vector solutions of a suitable single Schr\"odinger weakly coupled system, even if they are not ground states.

ABSTRACT: In this paper orbital stability of solutions of weakly coupled nonlinear Schrödinger equations is studied. It is proved that ground state solutionsscalar or vector onesare orbitally stable, while bound states with Morse index strictly greater than one are not stable. Moreover, an instability result for large exponent in the nonlinearity is presented.

ABSTRACT: We deal with the nonlinear Schrödinger equation −∆u + V (x)u = f (u) in R N , where V is a (possible) sign changing potential satisfying mild assumptions and the nonlinearity f ∈ C 1 (R, R) is a subcritical and superlinear function. By combining variational techniques and the concentrationcompactness principle we obtain a positive ground state solution and also a nodal solution. The proofs rely in localizing the infimum of the associated functional constrained to Nehari type sets.Advanced Nonlinear Studies 01/2008; 8:353373. · 0.92 Impact Factor  [Show abstract] [Hide abstract]
