We prove that the Dirichlet problem for the Lane-Emden equation in a half-space has no positive solutions which grow at most like the distance to the boundary to a power given by the natural scaling exponent of the equation; in other words, we rule out {\it type~I grow-up} solutions. Such a nonexistence result was previously available only for bounded solutions, or under a restriction on the power in the nonlinearity. Instrumental in the proof are local pointwise bounds for the logarithmic…

Global Gradient Estimates for a General Type of Nonlinear Parabolic Equations
We provide global gradient estimates for solutions to a general type of nonlinear parabolic equations, possibly in a Riemannian geometry setting. Our result is new in comparison with the existing


We consider weak positive solutions of the equation mu = f(u) in the half-plane with zero Dirichlet boundary conditions. Assum- ing that the nonlinearity f is locally Lipschitz continuous and f(s) >
Singularity and decay estimates in superlinear problems via Liouville-type theorems, I: Elliptic equations and systems
In this paper, we study some new connections between Liouville-type theorems and local properties of nonnegative solutions to superlinear elliptic problems. Namely, we develop a general method for
Existence Results for Nonproper Elliptic Equations Involving the Pucci Operator
We study the equation in general smooth bounded domain Ω, and show it possesses nontrivial solutions provided that: f is sublinear, or f is superlinear and the equation admits a priori bounds. The
Some results about semilinear elliptic problems on half-spaces
We prove some new results about the growth, the monotonicity and the symmetry of (possibly) unbounded non-negative solutions of −∆u = f (u) on half-spaces, where f is merely a locally Lipschitz
A priori bounds for positive solutions of nonlinear elliptic equations
We derive a priori bounds for positive solutions of the non-linear elliptic boundary value problem where Ω is a bounded domain in R n. Our proof is by contradiction and uses a scaling (“blow up”)
On Nonexistence of Type II Blowup for a Supercritical Nonlinear Heat Equation
In this paper we study blowup of radially symmetric solutions of the nonlinear heat equation ut = Δu + |u|p−1u either on ℝN or on a finite ball under the Dirichlet boundary conditions. We assume that

This paper is concerned with the existence of solutions of the Dirichlet problem for quasilinear elliptic partial differential equations of second order, the conclusions being in the form of
Classification and Liouville-type theorems for semilinear elliptic equations in unbounded domains
We classify stable and finite Morse index solutions to general semilinear elliptic equations posed in Euclidean space of dimension at most 10, or in some unbounded domains.
