Abstract:

Research was undertaken on questions concerning the existence, uniqueness, continuous data dependence and numerical computations of solutions of various ill posed problems in partial differential equations. It was shown that a potential well theory is possible for certain hyperbolic problems in which a nonlinear boundary condition is prescribed and not possible in certain cases when the forcing term in the differential equation is singular. Several papers were accepted or submitted during this period. Examples of titles are Inequalities between Dirichlet and Neumann eigenvalues, and A potential well theory for the heat equation with a nonlinear boundary condition.
