We consider the following system of Liouville equations: $$\left\{\begin{array}{ll}-\Delta u_1=2e^{u_1}+\mu e^{u_2}&\text{in }\mathbb R^2\\-\Delta u_2=\mu e^{u_1}+2e^{u_2}&\text{in }\mathbb R^2\\\int_{\mathbb R^2}e^{u_1}<+\infty,\int_{\mathbb R^2}e^{u_2}<+\infty\end{array}\right.$$ We show existence of at least $n-\left[\frac{n}3\right]$ global branches of nonradial solutions bifurcating from $u_1(x)=u_2(x)=U(x)=\log\frac{64}{(2+\mu)\left(8+|x|^2\right)^2}$ at the values $\mu=-2\frac{n^2+n-2}{n^2+n+2}$ for any $n\in\mathbb N$.

In this paper we establish existence of radial and nonradial solutions to the system $$ \begin{array}{ll} -\Delta u_1 = F_1(u_1,u_2) &\text{in }\mathbb{R}^N,\newline -\Delta u_2 = F_2(u_1,u_2) &\text{in }\mathbb{R}^N,\newline u_1\geq 0,\ u_2\geq 0 &\text{in }\mathbb{R}^N,\newline u_1,u_2\in D^{1,2}(\mathbb{R}^N), \end{array} $$ where $F_1,F_2$ are nonlinearities with critical behavior.

In this paper we prove the existence of continua of nonradial solutions for the Lane-Emden equation. In a first result we show that there are infinitely many global continua detaching from the curve of radial solutions with any prescribed number of nodal zones. Next, using the fixed point index in cone, we produce nonradial solutions with a new type of symmetry. Read More

In this paper we prove an existence result to the problem
$$\left\{\begin{array}{ll} -\Delta u = |u|^{p-1} u \qquad & \text{in} \Omega,
\\ u= 0 & \text{on} \partial\Omega, \end{array} \right. $$ where $\Omega$ is a
bounded domain in ${\mathbb R}^{N}$ which is a perturbation of the annulus.
Then there exists a sequence $p_1

In this paper we consider the non-variational system $$ \begin{cases} -\Delta u_i = \sum\limits_{j=1}^k a_{ij} u_j^{(N+2)/(N-2)} &\text{in }\mathbb R^N,\newline u_i>0 &\text{in }\mathbb R^N,\newline u_i\in D^{1,2}(\mathbb R^N). \end{cases} $$ and we give some sufficient conditions on the matrix $(a_{ij})_{i,j=1,\dotsc ,k}$ which ensure the existence of solutions bifurcating from the bubble of the critical Sobolev equation.

We consider a semilinear elliptic problem in an annulus of R^N, with N>1. Recent results ensure that there exists a sequence p_k of exponents of the nonlinear term at which a nonradial bifurcation from the radial solution occurs. Exploiting the properties of O(N-1)-invariant spherical harmonics, we introduce two suitable cones K^1 and $K^2$ of O(N-1)-invariant functions that allow to separate the branches of bifurcating solutions from the others, getting the unboundedness of these branches.

In this paper we study the Hardy problem in R^N with N>2 and in a ball B of R^N. Using a suitable map we transform the Hardy problem into another one without the singular term. Then we obtain some bifurcation results from the radial positive solutions corresponding to some explicit values of the parameter lambda. Read More

In this paper we consider the problem $-\Delta u=|x|^{\alpha} F(u)$ in $R^N$, with $\alpha>0$ and $N\ge3$. Under some assumptions on $F$ we deduce the existence of nonradial solutions which bifurcate from the radial one when $\alpha$ is an even integer. Read More

We study the following generalized $SU(3)$ Toda System $$ \left\{\begin{array}{ll} -\Delta u=2e^u+\mu e^v & \hbox{ in }\R^2\\ -\Delta v=2e^v+\mu e^u & \hbox{ in }\R^2\\ \int_{\R^2}e^u<+\infty,\ \int_{\R^2}e^v<+\infty \end{array}\right. $$ where $\mu>-2$. We prove the existence of radial solutions bifurcating from the radial solution $(\log \frac{64}{(2+\mu) (8+|x|^2)^2}, \log \frac{64}{ (2+\mu) (8+|x|^2)^2})$ at the values $\mu=\mu_n=2\frac{2-n-n^2}{2+n+n^2},\ n\in\N $.

We derive a second order estimate for the first m eigenvalues and eigenfunctions of the linearized Gel'fand problem associated to solutions which blow-up at m points. This allows us to determine, in some suitable situations, some qualitative properties of the first m eigenfunctions as the number of points of concentration or the multiplicity of the eigenvalue .

In this paper we study the problem -\Delta u =\left(\frac{2+\alpha}{2}\right)^2\abs{x}^{\alpha}f(\lambda,u), & \hbox{in}B_1 \\ u > 0, & \hbox{in}B_1 u = 0, & \hbox{on} \partial B_1 where $B_1$ is the unit ball of $\R^2$, $f$ is a smooth nonlinearity and $\a$, $\l$ are real numbers with $\a>0$. From a careful study of the linearized operator we compute the Morse index of some radial solutions to \eqref{i0}. Moreover, using the bifurcation theory, we prove the existence of branches of nonradial solutions for suitable values of the positive parameter $\l$. Read More

In this paper we consider the H\'enon problem in a ball. We prove the existence of (at least) one branch of nonradial solutions that bifurcate from the radial ones and that this branch is unbounded. Read More

In this paper we consider the problem $$ {ll} -\Delta u=(N+\a)(N-2)|x|^{\a}u^\frac{N+2+2\a}{N-2} & in R^N u>0& in R^N u\in D^{1,2}(R^N). $$ where $N\ge3$. From the characterization of the solutions of the linearized operator, we deduce the existence of nonradial solutions which bifurcate from the radial one when $\alpha$ is an even integer. Read More

In this paper we prove symmetry results for classical solutions of semilinear cooperative elliptic systems in R^N, or in the exterior of a ball. We consider the case of fully coupled systems and nonlinearities which are either convex or have a convex derivative. The solutions are shown to be foliated Schwarz symmetric if a bound on their Morse index holds. Read More

Blow-up solutions to the two-dimensional Gel'fand problem are studied. It is known that the location of the blow-up points of these solutions is related to a Hamiltonian function involving the Green function of the domain. We show that this implies an equivalence between the Morse indices of the solutions and the associated critical points of the Hamiltonian. Read More

We study existence, uniqueness, multiplicity and symmetry of large solutions for a class of quasi-linear elliptic equations. Furthermore, we characterize the boundary blow-up rate of solutions, including the case where the contribution of boundary curvature appears. Read More

We prove the uniqueness of positive radial solutions for a class of quasi-linear elliptic problems containing, in particular, the quasi-linear Schrodinger equation. Read More
