p-th Kazdan-Warner equation on graph
Let $G=(V,E)$ be a connected finite graph and $C(V)$ be the set of functions defined on $V$. Let $\Delta_p$ be the discrete $p$-Laplacian on $G$ with $p>1$ and $L=\Delta_p-k$, where $k\in C(V)$ is
Symplectic vortex equations for Kahler cones over Sasakian manifolds
We obtain a Hitchin-Kobayashi-type correspondence for symplectic vortex equations, with the target a Kahler cone over a compact Sasakian manifold. We show that the correspondence reduces to studying
The Nirenberg problem of prescribed Gauss curvature on $S^2$
We introduce a new perspective on the classical Nirenberg problem of understanding the possible Gauss curvatures of metrics on $S^{2}$ conformal to the round metric. A key tool is to employ the

It is proved new existence criteria relevant for the non-linear elliptic PDE of the form M1 valid when ocean surface currents are modeled, as well as several previously known results valid when the parameter regime is changed.

In this paper, we study the sign-changing Kazdan-Warner's problem on two dimensional closed Riemannian manifold with negative Euler number $\chi(M)<0$. We show that once, the direct method on convex
