a r t i c l e i n f o a b s t r a c t The existence of positive solutions depending on a nonnegative parameter λ to Kirchhoff type problems with zero mass is proved by using variational method, and the new result does not require usual compactness conditions. A priori estimate and a Pohozaev type identity are used to obtain the bounded Palais–Smale… (More)
MOTIVATION Glycosylation is a ubiquitous type of protein post-translational modification (PTM) in eukaryotic cells, which plays vital roles in various biological processes (BPs) such as cellular communication, ligand recognition and subcellular recognition. It is estimated that >50% of the entire human proteome is glycosylated. However, it is still a… (More)
In this paper, we discuss the existence of positive periodic solutions to the nonlinear differential equation u (t) + a(t)u(t) = f (t, u(t)), t ∈ R, where a : R → [0, +∞) is an ω-periodic continuous function with a(t) ≡ 0, f : R × [0, +∞) → [0, +∞) is continuous and f (·, u) : R → [0, +∞) is also an ω-periodic function for each u ∈ [0, +∞). Using the fixed… (More)
Existence and bifurcation of positive solutions to a Kirchhoff type equation ⎧ ⎪ ⎨ ⎪ ⎩ − a + b Ω |∇u| 2 u = νf (x, u), in Ω, u = 0, on ∂Ω are considered by using topological degree argument and variational method. Here f is a continuous function which is asymptot-ically linear at zero and is asymptotically 3-linear at infinity. The new results fill in a gap… (More)
Glycosylation plays an important role in cell-cell adhesion, ligand-binding and subcellular recognition. Current approaches for predicting protein glycosylation are primarily based on sequence-derived features, while little work has been done to systematically assess the importance of structural features to glycosylation prediction. Here, we propose a novel… (More)
The existence of positive solutions to Schrödinger–Poisson type systems in R 3 with critically growing nonlocal term is proved by using variational method which does not require usual compactness conditions. A key ingredient of the proof is a new Brézis–Lieb type convergence result.
