Elliptic PDEs with Fibered Nonlinearities

In ℝm×ℝn−m, endowed with coordinates x=(x′,x″), we consider bounded solutions of the PDE $$\Delta u(x)=f(u(x))\chi(x').$$ We prove a geometric inequality, from which a symmetry result follows.

Stable non-Gaussian random processes

The asymptotic behaviour of (Yn, n e N) is of fundamental importance in probability theory. Indeed, if the Xj have common mean fi and variance a, then by taking each an = n/u and b„ = n a, the

Consider a random walk of n steps on an infinite, simple cubic lattice. Let p(r) be the (symmetric) probability of a vector jump r, and let Sn be the expected number of distinct lattice points
