Periodic solutions of nonlinear wave equations with general nonlinearities

Authored via best students, this complete, self-contained textual content provides a view of the cutting-edge in multi-dimensional hyperbolic partial differential equations, with a selected emphasis on difficulties during which glossy instruments of research have proved invaluable. Ordered in sections of steadily expanding levels of hassle, the textual content first covers linear Cauchy difficulties and linear preliminary boundary price difficulties, sooner than relocating directly to nonlinear difficulties, together with surprise waves.

This basic idea, which we shall call the reduction principle, will be applied later also to nonconvex approximation and will be extended to convex and nonconvex optimization.

82) 20 1. Preliminaries and the bipolar of C is C°° := (C°)°. The classical "bipolar theorem" states that, for any subset C of a locally convex space X, we have C°° = co(C U {0}); hence, a set C containing 0 is closed and convex if and only if C°° = C. + = [0, +oo], it is necessary to give a precise meaning to expressions like oo — oo and 0 X 00. , Moreau ) that the usual addition -\- on R = (—oo, +oo) admits two natural extensions to R, + and +, called upper and lower addition, respectively, defined by a+b = afb = a-\-b if either/?

If X is a locally convex space and f,h:X^^R are convex functions such that one of them is continuous at some point 6>/dom / Pi dom h, then Hf + h)(xo) = df(xo) + dh(xo) {xo e X). 9. It is easy to see that here the + signs are just the usual sums. We recall that if X is a linear space and / : X -> R is a.
