Lectures on: Bifurcation Theory and Applications to Elliptic Boundary-Value Problems

Professor Charles Stuart

In the standard results used to treat elliptic boundary-value problems, the connection between the nonlinear problem and its linearisation is made by requiring Fréchet differentiability at the trivial solutions. For some elliptic problems this fails but differentiability in the sense of Hadamard still holds. This will be explored by treating the following topics.
