Variational Methods for Strongly Indefinite ProblemseBook - 2007
"This unique book focuses on critical point theory for strongly indefinite functionals aiming to deal with nonlinear variational problems arising from physics, mechanics, economics, etc. With the original ingredients of Lipschitz partitions of unity of gage spaces (nonmetrizable spaces), Lipschitz normality, and sufficient conditions for the normality, as well as existence-uniqueness of flow of ODE on gage spaces, it presents for the first time a deformation theory in locally convex topological vector spaces (LCTVS). The book then offers satisfying variational settings for homoclinic type solutions to Hamiltonian systems, Schrodinger equations, Dirac equations and diffusion systems, and describes recent developments in studying these problems."--Jacket.
