Abstract We provide a simple proof of the radial symmetry of any nonnegative minimizer for a general class of quasi-linear minimization problems. 
On a bifurcation value related to quasi-linear Schrödinger equations
By virtue of numerical arguments we study a bifurcation phenomenon occurring for a class of minimization problems associated with the so-called quasi-linear Schrödinger equation, object of various
Symmetry and monotonicity of least energy solutions
We give a simple proof of the fact that for a large class of quasilinear elliptic equations and systems the solutions that minimize the corresponding energy in the set of all solutions are radially


An approach to minimization under a constraint: the added mass technique
For a class of minimization problems, where the functionals are weakly lower semicontinuous, we present, through the treatment of some semi-linear or quasi-linear type problems, techniques to show

Symmetry and related properties via the maximum principle
We prove symmetry, and some related properties, of positive solutions of second order elliptic equations. Our methods employ various forms of the maximum principle, and a device of moving parallel
Symmetrization and minimax principles
We develop a method to prove that some critical levels for functionals invariant by symmetry obtained by minimax methods without any symmetry constraint are attained by symmetric critical points. It
Strong convergence results related to strict convexity
Let Ωbe endowed with a σ—, complete measure and let weakly in . If u(x) is an external point of the closed convex hull of a.e. in Ω, then strongly in cannot oscillate around u(x). Other strong

Generalized Polya-Szego inequality and applications to some quasi-linear elliptic problems
We generalize Polya-Szego inequality to integrands depending on $u$ and its gradient. Under minimal additional assumptions, we establish equality cases in this generalized inequality. We also give
Euler equations involving nonlinearities without growth conditions
A functional is considered, whose Euler equation involves a nonlinearity without growth conditions. It is shown that every minimum point of the functional is a solution of the Euler equation in a
The aim of this monograph is to present a comprehensive survey of results about existence, multiplicity, perturbation from symmetry and concentration phenomena for the quasi-linear elliptic equation
