On Completeness of Root Functions of Sturm-Liouville Problems with Discontinuous Boundary OperatorsApr 12 2019We consider a Sturm--Liouville boundary value problem in a boun\-ded domain $\cD$ of $\mathbb{R}^n$. By this is meant that the differential equation is given by a second order elliptic operator of divergent form in $\cD$ and the boundary conditions are ... More
On non-coercive mixed problems for parameter-dependent elliptic operatorsApr 12 2019We consider a (generally, non-coercive) mixed boundary value problem in a bounded domain $D$ of ${\mathbb R}^n$ for a second order parameter-dependent elliptic differential operator $A (x,\partial, \lambda)$ with complex-valued essentially bounded measured ...

Unique weak solutions of the non-resistive magnetohydrodynamic equations with fractional dissipationApr 12 2019This paper examines the uniqueness of weak solutions to the d-dimensional magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) equations with the fractional dissipation $(-\Delta)^\alpha u$ and without the magnetic diffusion. Important progress has been made on the standard Laplacian ... More
Certain fractional Laplacian equations that do not have smooth solutionsApr 11 2019Let $f$ be a real-valued function defined on $\mathbb{R}$, with $f(0) \neq 0$ and which is not constant in non empty open intervals. We prove the equations \begin{equation}\label{edif} \left\{ \begin{array}{rcll} (-\Delta )^{s}u & = & f(u), & \text{in ... More
External optimal control of fractional parabolic PDEsApr 11 2019In this paper we introduce a new notion of optimal control, or source identification in inverse, problems with fractional parabolic PDEs as constraints. This new notion allows a source/control placement outside the domain where the PDE is fulfilled. We ... More
On the speed rate of convergence of solutions to conservation laws with nonlinear diffusionsApr 11 2019In this paper we analyze the long-time behavior of solutions to conservation laws with nonlinear diffusion terms of different types: saturating dissipation (monotone and non monotone) and singular nonlinear diffusions are considered. In particular, the ... More
The Hénon problem with large exponent in the discApr 11 2019In this paper we consider the H\'enon problem in the unit disc with Dirichlet boundary conditions. We study the asymptotic profile of least energy and nodal least energy radial solutions and then deduce the exact computation of their Morse index for large ... More
