Some Aspects of Nonlinear Spectral Theory

  • Pavel Drábek
Part of the Progress in Nonlinear Differential Equations and Their Applications book series (PNLDE, volume 43)


Let us give the following simple motivation which arises in such a fundamental subject as the Sobolev imbedding theorems.


Weak Solution Principal Eigenvalue Fredholm Alternative Unique Critical Point Dimensional Linear Subspace 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
