I consider solutions with asymptotic selfsimilarity. The behavior shows an invariance which comes naturally from nonlinearity. The basic model is LaneEmden equation. Solution structures depend on the dimension as well as the exponent describing the nonlinearity. More generally, I will explain the corresponding result for quasilinear equations in...

This talk concerns a PDE system that models tumor growth. We show that a novel free boundary problem arises via the incompressible limit of this model. We take a viscosity solutions approach; however, since the system lacks maximum principle, there are interesting challenges to overcome. This is joint work with Inwon Kim.

In this talk, I will discuss recent results produced with coauthors Ivan Blank (KSU) and Brian Benson (UCR) regarding a formulation of the Mean Value Theorem for the LaplaceBeltrami operator on smooth Riemannian manifolds. We define the sets upon which mean values of (sub)harmonic functions are computed via a particular obstacle problem in...

In this talk, we will show that the full dimensional invariant tori obtained by Bourgain [J. Funct. Anal., 229 (2005), no. 1, 62–94] is stable in a very long time for 1D nonlinear Schrödinger equation with periodic boundary conditions.

Given a planar infinity harmonic function u, for each
$\alpha>0$ we show a quantitative $W^{1,\,2}_{\loc}$estimate of
$Du^{\alpha}$, which is sharp when $\alpha\to 0$. As a consequence we
obtain an $L^p$Liouville property for infinity harmonic functions in
the whole plane

Consider a diffusive passive scalar advected by a two
dimensional incompressible flow. If the flow is cellular (i.e.\ has a
periodic Hamiltonian with no unbounded trajectories), then classical
homogenization results show that the long time behaviour is an effective
Brownian motion. We show that on intermediate time scales, the effective
behaviour...

This is a joint work with Piermarco Cannarsa and Wei Cheng.
We study the properties of the set S of nondifferentiable points of viscosity solutions of the HamiltonJacobi equation, for a Tonelli Hamiltonian.
The main surprise is the fact that this set is locally arc connected—it is even locally contractible. This last property...
