## DG-MP-PDE Seminar: Revisiting an idea of Brezis and Nirenberg

• Date: 08/05/2010
Lecturer(s):
Chang-Shou Lin (National Taiwan University)
Location:

University of British Columbia

Description:

Usually, a nonlinear functional involving the Sobolev exponent does not satisfy the Palais-Smale condition. However, Brezis and Nirenberg showed that under a threshold , the minimax value is in fact a critical value. In this talk, we should extend this idea to the equation involving with the Hardy singular potential.

Schedule:

10:30am - 11:30am, WMAX 216
