Saddle Solutions of Allen-Cahn Equation on the Plane.


Allen-Cahn equation arises in the mathematical study of phase transition. Despite it's seemingly simple appearance, It has displayed very rich structure of solutions and involved with deep mathematics. In this talk, I will discuss the existence, symmetry and classification of saddle solutions of Allen-Cahn equation on the plane. In particular, I will describe the variational characterization of these solutions as a mountain pass solutions.
