Example text

Let α = inf G. ) Let {uk } be a minimizing sequence, that is, a sequence satisfying G(uk ) → α. Assume first that ρk = uk H ≤ C. 24, that G(u0 ) = α. Next, assume that ρk = uk and let u ˜k = uk /ρk . 21). Now, 2G(uk )/ρ2k = 1 − 2 I F (x, uk ) u2k • u ˜2k dx. Let Ω1 be the set of points x ∈ I such that |uk (x)| → ∞, and let Ω2 be the set of points x ∈ I such that |uk (x)| is bounded. Let Ω3 = I \ (Ω1 ∪ Ω2 ). e. 82) ˜k (x) = uk (x)/ρk → 0, and, consequently, u ˜(x) = 0. 82) holds as well. If x ∈ Ω3 , there are subsequences for which |uk (x)| → ∞ and subsequences for which |uk (x)| is bounded.

34, there is a uk ∈ H such that G(yk ) ≤ α + G(uk ) ≤ G(yk ), G (uk ) ≤ 1 . k This gives the required sequence. 5. That proof will be simpler than the one given here. 36. A sequence satisfying G(uk ) → c, G (uk ) → 0. 112) is called a Palais–Smale sequence or PS sequence. 35 does not obtain a minimum for the functional G on H. 2). 111). If a functional is such that every PS sequence has a convergent subsequence, we say that is satisfies the Palais–Smale condition or PS condition. 63). 37. 2). Proof.

Another question we can ask is if the solutions obtained by our theorems are constants. 32. 30 assume that for each t ∈ R f (x, t) ≡ constant. 2) provided by these theorems are nonconstant. Proof. If u ∈ N and v ∈ M, then (G (u), v)/2 = (u, v)H − f (x, u)v dx = − I f (x, t)v dx, I where u(x) ≡ t. 106), f (x, t) ∈ N. Hence, there is a v ∈ M such that (G (u), v)/2 = − f (x, t)v dx = 0. I Therefore, we cannot have G (u) = 0 for u ∈ N. 12 Approximate extrema We now give a very useful method of finding points which are close to being extremum points even when no extremum exists.
