The Mountain Pass Theorem: Variants, Generalizations and Some Applications

The Mountain Pass Theorem: Variants, Generalizations and Some Applications Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Joussef Jabri presents min-max methods through a comprehensive study of the different faces of the celebrated Mountain Pass Theorem (MPT) of Ambrosetti and Rabinowitz. Jabri clarifies the extensions and variants of the MPT in a complete and unified way and covers standard topics: the classical and dual MPT; second-order information from PS sequences; symmetry and topological index theory; perturbations from symmetry; convexity and more. He also covers the non-smooth MPT; the geometrically constrained MPT; numerical approaches to the MPT; and even more exotic variants. A bibliography and detailed index are also included.

Synopsis:

This book presents min-max methods through a comprehensive study of the different faces of the celebrated Mountain Pass Theorem (MPT) of Ambrosetti and Rabinowitz. The reader is gently led from the most accessible results to the forefront of the theory, and at each step in this walk between the hills, the author presents the extensions and variants of the MPT in a complete and unified way. Coverage includes standard topics: the classical and dual MPT; second-order information from PS sequences; symmetry and topological index theory; perturbations from symmetry; convexity and more. But it also covers other topics covered nowhere else in book form: the non-smooth MPT; the geometrically constrained MPT; numerical approaches to the MPT; and even more exotic variants. Each chapter has a section with supplementary comments and bibliographical notes, and there is a rich bibliography and a detailed index to aid the reader. The book is suitable for researchers and graduate students. Nevertheless, the style and the choice of the material make it accessible to all newcomers to the field.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 323-365) and index.
