On the existence and regularity of non-flat profiles for a Bernoulli free boundary problem

In this paper we consider a large class of Bernoulli-type free boundary problems with mixed periodic-Dirichlet boundary conditions. We show that solutions with non-flat profile can be found

Free Boundary Minimal Annuli Immersed in the Unit 3-Ball

. Using the linearized doubling methodology we carry out a PDE gluing construction of a discrete family of non-rotational properly immersed free boundary minimal annuli in the Euclidean unit 3-ball.

Nondegeneracy and stability in the limit of a one-phase singular perturbation problem

We study solutions to a one-phase singular perturbation problem that arises in combustion theory and that formally approximates the classical one-phase free boundary problem. We introduce a natural

Some remarks on stability of cones for the one-phase free boundary problem

We show that stable cones for the one-phase free boundary problem are hyperplanes in dimension 4. As a corollary, both one and two-phase energy minimizing hypersurfaces are smooth in dimension 4.

Classification of the Solutions to an Overdetermined Elliptic Problem in the Plane

We classify the solutions to an overdetermined elliptic problem in the plane in the finite connectivity case. This is achieved by establishing a one-to-one correspondence between the solutions to

A note on some overdetermined elliptic problem

We define the notion of an exceptional manifold to be a flat Riemannian manifold with boundary which supports a positive harmonic function satisfying simultaneously a zero Dirichlet condition and a

Stability for hypersurfaces of constant mean curvature with free boundary

The partitioning problem for a smooth convex bodyB ⊂ ℝ3 consists in to study, among surfaces which divideB in two pieces of prescribed volume, those which are critical points of the area

On an overdetermined elliptic problem

A smooth flat Riemannian manifold is called an exceptional domain if it admits positive harmonic functions having vanishing Dirichlet boundary data and constant (nonzero) Neumann boundary data. In

Linearization and explicit solutions of the minimal surface equation

We show that the apparatus of support functions, usually used in convex surfaces theory, leads to the linear equation ?h + 2h = 0 describing locally germs of minimal surfaces. Here ? is the
