About the Authors
  • This introduction to the singularly perturbed methods in the nonlinear elliptic partial differential equations emphasises the existence and local uniqueness of solutions exhibiting concentration property. The authors avoid using sophisticated estimates and explain the main techniques by thoroughly investigating two relatively simple but typical non-compact elliptic problems. Each chapter then progresses to other related problems to help the reader learn more about the general theories developed from singularly perturbed methods. Designed for PhD students and junior mathematicians intending to do their research in the area of elliptic differential equations, the text covers three main topics. The first is the compactness of the minimization sequences, or the Palais-Smale sequences, or a sequence of approximate solutions; the second is the construction of peak or bubbling solutions by using the Lyapunov-Schmidt reduction method; and the third is the local uniqueness of these solutions.

    • Provides self-contained materials for PhD students and junior mathematicians who wish to acquaint themselves with singularly perturbed methods
    • Makes the techniques understandable without involving too many sophisticated estimates
    • Discusses the general theories developed from the singularly perturbed methods

    'This book presents in a very nice and self-contained manner the main methods to find (or to construct) solutions, which exhibit a concentration property, to non-compact elliptic problems.' Lutz Recke, ZB Math Reviews
