This volume is the proceedings of the IMA workshop "Degenerate Diffusions" held at the University of Minnesota from May 13-May 18, 1991. The workshop consisted of two parts. The emphasis of the first four days was on current progress or new problems in nonlinear diffusions involving free boundaries or sharp interfaces. Analysts and geometers will find some of the mathematical models described in this volume interesting; and the papers of more pure mathematical nature included here should provide applied mathematicians with powerful methods and useful techniques in handling singular perturbation problems as well as free boundary problems. The last two days of the workshop were a celebration of James Serrin's 65th birthday. A wide range of topics was covered in this part of the workshop. As a consequence, the scope of this book is much broader than what the title Degenerate Diffusions might suggest

Nonlinear diffusion equations and their equilibrium states II : proceedings of a microprogram held August 25 - September 12, 1986 by W.-M Ni( Book )

6 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years considerable interest has been focused on nonlinear diffu sion problems, the archetypical equation for these being Ut = ~U + f(u). Here ~ denotes the n-dimensional Laplacian, the solution u = u(x, t) is defined over some space-time domain of the form n x [O, T], and f(u) is a given real function whose form is determined by various physical and mathematical applications. These applications have become more varied and widespread as problem after problem has been shown to lead to an equation of this type or to its time-independent counterpart, the elliptic equation of equilibrium ~u+f(u)=O. Particular cases arise, for example, in population genetics, the physics of nu clear stability, phase transitions between liquids and gases, flows in porous media, the Lend-Emden equation of astrophysics, various simplified com bustion models, and in determining metrics which realize given scalar or Gaussian curvatures. In the latter direction, for example, the problem of finding conformal metrics with prescribed curvature leads to a ground state problem involving critical exponents. Thus not only analysts, but geome ters as well, can find common ground in the present work. The corresponding mathematical problem is to determine how the struc ture of the nonlinear function f(u) influences the behavior of the solution

In recent years considerable interest has been focused on nonlinear diffu sion problems, the archetypical equation for these being Ut = D.u + f(u). Here D. denotes the n-dimensional Laplacian, the solution u = u(x, t) is defined over some space-time domain of the form n x [O,T], and f(u) is a given real function whose form is determined by various physical and mathematical applications. These applications have become more varied and widespread as problem after problem has been shown to lead to an equation of this type or to its time-independent counterpart, the elliptic equation of equilibrium D.u + f(u) = o. Particular cases arise, for example, in population genetics, the physics of nu clear stability, phase transitions between liquids and gases, flows in porous media, the Lend-Emden equation of astrophysics, various simplified com bustion models, and in determining metrics which realize given scalar or Gaussian curvatures.

Clines induced by variable selection and migration by Paul C Fife( Book )

4 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The problem studied is in the area of differential equations; it models the spatial distribution of the genetic composition of a population in a heterogeneous environment, account being taken of migration and natural selection effects. More generally, it models a distribution in the composition of an ecological community. A number of conditions are given which guarantee the existence or nonexistence of a stable nonuniform equilibrium distribution, which is known as a cline. Of special interest is the case when two stable homogeneous distributions are possible; there may or may not also exist a heterogeneous one. (Author)

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nonlinear diffusion equations have held a prominent place in the theory of partial differential equations, both for the challenging and deep math ematical questions posed by such equations and the important role they play in many areas of science and technology. Examples of current inter est are biological and chemical pattern formation, semiconductor design, environmental problems such as solute transport in groundwater flow, phase transitions and combustion theory. Central to the theory is the equation Ut = ~cp(U) + f(u). Here ~ denotes the n-dimensional Laplacian, cp and f are given functions and the solution is defined on some domain n x [0, T] in space-time. FUn damental questions concern the existence, uniqueness and regularity of so lutions, the existence of interfaces or free boundaries, the question as to whether or not the solution can be continued for all time, the asymptotic behavior, both in time and space, and the development of singularities, for instance when the solution ceases to exist after finite time, either through extinction or through blow up
