Brand new. We distribute directly for the publisher. A conference was organized to discuss research in variational methods as applied to nonlinear elliptic PDE. This volume ... resulted from that gathering. Included are both survey and research papers that address important open questions and offer suggestions on analytical and numerical techniques for solving those open problems.It is suitable for graduate students and research mathematicians interested in elliptic partial differential equations.

More About This Textbook


Stark's conjectures on the behavior of $L$-functions were formulated in the 1970s. Since then, these conjectures and their generalizations have been actively investigated. This has led to significant progress in algebraic number theory. The current volume, based on the conference held at Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore, MD), represents the state-of-the-art research in this area. The first four survey papers provide an introduction to a majority of the recent work related to Stark's conjectures. The remaining six contributions touch on some major themes currently under exploration in the area, such as non-abelian and $p$-adic aspects of the conjectures, abelian refinements, etc. Among others, some important contributors to the volume include Harold M. Stark, John Tate, and Barry Mazur. The book is suitable for graduate students and researchers interested in number theory.
