Article
Using symmetrization techniques, we show that, for every N ≥ 2 N \geq 2 , any second eigenfunction of the fractional Laplacian in the N N -dimensional unit ball with homogeneous Dirichlet conditions is nonradial, and hence its nodal set is an equatorial section of the ball.
Article
We investigate the basis properties of sequences of Fučík eigenfunctions of the one-dimensional Neumann Laplacian. We show that any such sequence is complete in L2(0,π) and a Riesz basis in the subspace of functions with zero mean. Moreover, we provide sufficient assumptions on Fučík eigenvalues which guarantee that the corresponding Fučík eigenfun...

We provide improved sufficient assumptions on sequences of Fucik eigenvalues of the one-dimensional Dirichlet Laplacian which guarantee that the corresponding Fucik eigenfunctions form a Riesz basis in $L^2(0,\pi)$. For that purpose, we introduce a criterion for a sequence in a Hilbert space to be a Riesz basis.

We study the existence, multiplicity, and certain qualitative properties of solutions to the zero Dirichlet problem for the equation $-\Delta_p u = \lambda |u|^{p-2}u + a(x)|u|^{q-2}u$ in a bounded domain $\Omega \subset \mathbb{R}^N$, where $1<q<p$, $\lambda\in\mathbb{R}$, and $a$ is a continuous sign-changing weight function.

We study the zero Dirichlet problem for the equation [Formula: see text] in a bounded domain [Formula: see text], with [Formula: see text]. We investigate the relation between two critical curves on the [Formula: see text]-plane corresponding to the threshold of existence of special classes of positive solutions. In particular, in certain neighborh...

Let $\mu_2(\Omega)$ be the first positive eigenvalue of the Neumann Laplacian in a bounded domain $\Omega \subset \mathbb{R}^N$. It was proved by Szego for $N=2$ and by Weinberger for $N \geq 2$ that among all equimeasurable domains $\mu_2(\Omega)$ attains its global maximum if $\Omega$ is a ball. In the present work, we develop the approach of Wei...

When λ>0, the obtained solutions can be seen as steady states of the corresponding react...

We obtain a generalization of the Picone inequality which, in combination with the classical Picone inequality, appears to be useful for problems with the ( p , q ) -Laplace-type operators. With its help, as well as with the help of several other known generalized Picone inequalities, we provide some nontrivial facts on the existence and nonexisten...

The anti-maximum principle for the homogeneous Dirichlet problem to −Δpu=λ|u|p−2u+f(x) with positive f∈L∞(Ω) states the existence of a critical value λf>λ1 such that any solution of this problem with λ∈(λ1,λf) is strictly negative. In this paper, we give a variational upper bound for λf and study its properties. As an important supplementary result...

Assume that a family of domain-dependent functionals $E_{\Omega_t}$ possesses a corresponding family of least energy critical points $u_t$ which can be found as (possibly nonunique) minimizers of $E_{\Omega_t}$ over the associated Nehari manifold $\mathcal{N}(\Omega_t)$. We obtain a formula for the second-order derivative of $E_{\Omega_t}$ with res...

We investigate the properties of the Cheeger sets of rotationally invariant, bounded domains $\Omega \subset \mathbb{R}^n$. For a rotationally invariant Cheeger set $C$, the free boundary $\partial C \cap \Omega$ consists of pieces of Delaunay surfaces, which are rotationally invariant surfaces of constant mean curvature. We show that if $\Omega$ i...

Let $a_{\nu,k}$ be the $k$-th positive zero of the cross-product of Bessel functions $J_\nu(R z) Y_\nu(z) - J_\nu(z) Y_\nu(R z)$, where $\nu\geq 0$ and $R>1$. We derive an initial value problem for a first order differential equation whose solution $\alpha(x)$ characterizes the limit behavior of $a_{\nu,k}$ in the following sense: $$ \lim_{k \to \i...

We develop the notion of higher Cheeger constants for a measurable set $\Omega \subset \mathbb{R}^N$. By the $k$-th Cheeger constant we mean the value \[h_k(\Omega) = \inf \max \{h_1(E_1), \dots, h_1(E_k)\},\] where the infimum is taken over all $k$-tuples of mutually disjoint subsets of $\Omega$, and $h_1(E_i)$ is the classical Cheeger constant of...

We investigate multiplicity and symmetry properties of higher eigenvalues and eigenfunctions of the $p$-Laplacian under homogeneous Dirichlet boundary conditions on certain symmetric domains $\Omega \subset \mathbb{R}^N$. By means of topological arguments, we show how symmetries of $\Omega$ help to construct subsets of $W_0^{1,p}(\Omega)$ with suit...

Let $B_1$ be a ball in $\mathbb{R}^N$ centred at the origin and $B_0$ be a smaller ball compactly contained in $B_1$. For $p\in(1, \infty)$, using the shape derivative method, we show that the first eigenvalue of the $p$-Laplacian in annulus $B_1\setminus \overline{B_0}$ strictly decreases as the inner ball moves towards the boundary of the outer b...
