AbstractWe present a systematic study of entire symmetric solutions $${u : \mathbb{R}^n \rightarrow\mathbb{R}^m}$$u:Rn→Rm of the vector Allen–Cahn equation $$\Delta u - W_u(u) = 0 \quad\text{for all}\quad x \in \mathbb{R}^n,$$Δu-Wu(u)=0for allx∈Rn,where $${W:\mathbb{R}^m \rightarrow \mathbb{R}}$$W:Rm→R is smooth, symmetric, nonnegative with a finite number of zeros, and where $${ W_u= (\partial W / \partial u_1,\dots,\partial W / \partial u_m)^{\top}}$$Wu=(∂W/∂u1,⋯,∂W/∂um)⊤. We introduce a…

We present a systematic study of entire symmetric solutions $$u:{\mathbb R}^n \to {\mathbb R}^m$$ of the vector Allen–Cahn equation Δu − Wu(u) = 0, $$x \in {\mathbb R}^n$$, where \(W:{\mathbb R}^m
It is proved that, under a nondegeneracy condition, the existence of a solution to the existence problem is given and a new proof of the existence is given.

We prove that the energy over balls of entire, nonconstant, bounded solutions to the vector Allen-Cahn equation grows faster than $(\ln R)^k R^{n-2}$, for any $k>0$, as the volume $R^n$ of the ball

We study entire minimizers of the Allen-Cahn systems. The specific feature of our systems are potentials having a finite number of global minima, with sub-quadratic behaviour locally near their
We consider a semilinear elliptic equation with Dirichlet boundary conditions in a smooth, possibly unbounded, domain. Under suitable assumptions, we deduce a condition on the size of the domain that
We prove an asymptotic monotonicity formula for bounded, globally minimizing solutions to a class of semilinear elliptic systems of the form ∆u = Wu(u), x ∈ R, n ≥ 2, with W : R → R, m ≥ 1,
