    Binding, Paul A.; Drabek, Pavel; Huang, Yin Xi (Texas State University, Department of Mathematics, 1997-01-30)
    We study the role played by the indefinite weight function a(x) on the existence of positive solutions to the problem { −div (|∇u|p−2∇u) = λa(x)|u|p−2u + b(x)|u|γ−2u, x ∈ Ω, ∂u = 0, x ∈ ∂Ω , ∂n where Ω is a smooth ...

    Ignatyev, Alexander O. (Texas State University, Department of Mathematics, 1997-10-29)
    A criterion of asymptotic stability for a linear oscillator with variable parameters is obtained. It is shown that this criterion is close to a necessary and sufficient conditions of asymptotic stability. An instability ...

    Drager, Lance D.; Layton, William (Texas State University, Department of Mathematics, 1997-12-19)
    We study initial value problems for scalar, nonlinear, delay dif- ferential equations with distributed, possibly infinite, delays. We consider the initial value problem { x(t) = ϕ(t), t ≤ 0 x' (t)+ g(t, s, x(t), x(t − ...

    Chen, Chao-Nien; Tzeng, Shyuh-yaur (Texas State University, Department of Mathematics, 1997-03-26)
    Homoclinic orbits play an important role in the study of qualitative behavior of dynamical systems. Such kinds of orbits have been studied since the time of Poincare. In this paper, we discuss how to use variational methods ...

    The analysis of Hill’s operator −D2 + q(x) for q even and periodic is extended from the real line to homogeneous trees T. Generalizing the classical problem, a detailed analysis of Hill’s equation and its related operator ...

    Adams, David R.; Nussenzveig Lopes, Helena J. (Texas State University, Department of Mathematics, 1997-10-31)
    We study 2X2 systems of variational inequalities which are only weakly elliptic; in particular, these systems are not necessarily monotone. The prototype differential operator is the (vector-valued) p-Laplacian. We prove, ...

    This article shows that the zero solution to the system xi = A(t)x + f(t, x), f(t, 0) = 0 is unstable. To show instability, we impose conditions on the nonlinear part f(t, x) and on the fundamental matrix of the linear ...
