We study a semilinear fourth order elliptic problem with exponential nonlinearity. Motivated by a question raised in [Li], we partially extend known results for the corresponding second order problem. Several new difficulties arise and many problems still remain to be solved. We list the ones we feel particularly interesting in the final section.
We develop a computer-assisted technique for constructing and analyzing orbits of dissipative evolution equations. As a case study, the methods are applied to the Kuramoto–Sivashinski equation, for which we prove the existence of a hyperbolic periodic orbit. 1. Introduction. In this paper we consider the problem of investigating the flow of dis-sipative… (More)
