This book primarily deals with non-linear operator theory in topological vector spaces and applications. Recently, non-linear functional analysis has become a main field of mathematics, which has played an important role in physics, mechanics and engineering, operations research and economics and many others for the past few decades. The book presents a survey of some main ideas, concepts, methods and applications in non-linear functional analysis.
Polynomial operators are a natural generalization of linear operators. Equations in such operators are the linear space analog of ordinary polynomials in one or several variables over the fields of real or complex numbers. Such equations encompass a broad spectrum of applied problems including all linear equations. Often the polynomial nature of many nonlinear problems goes unrecognized by researchers. This is more likely due to the fact that polynomial operators - unlike polynomials in a single variable - have received little attention. Consequently, this comprehensive presentation is needed, benefiting those working in the field as well as those seeking information about specific results or techniques. Polynomial Operator Equations in Abstract Spaces and Applications - an outgrowth of fifteen years of the author's research work - presents new and traditional results about polynomial equations as well as analyzes current iterative methods for their numerical solution in various general space settings. Topics include: Special cases of nonlinear operator equations Solution of polynomial operator equations of positive integer degree n Results on global existence theorems not related with contractions Galois theory Polynomial integral and polynomial differential equations appearing in radiative transfer, heat transfer, neutron transport, electromechanical networks, elasticity, and other areas Results on the various Chandrasekhar equations Weierstrass theorem Matrix representations Lagrange and Hermite interpolation Bounds of polynomial equations in Banach space, Banach algebra, and Hilbert space The materials discussed can be used for the following studies Advanced numerical analysis Numerical functional analysis Functional analysis Approximation theory Integral and differential equations Tables include Numerical solutions for Chandrasekhar's equation I to VI Error bounds comparison Accelerations schemes I and II for Newton's method Newton's method Secant method The self-contained text thoroughly details results, adds exercises for each chapter, and includes several applications for the solution of integral and differential equations throughout every chapter.
This work is based upon a Special Session on the Theory and Applications of Nonlinear Operators of Accretive and Monotone Type held during the recent meeting of the American Mathematical Society in San Francisco. It examines current developments in non-linear analysis, emphasizing accretive and monotone operator theory. The book presents a major survey/research article on partial functional differential equations with delay and an important survey/research article on approximation solvability.
This volume contains a collection of recent original research papers in operator theory in Krein spaces, on generalized Nevanlinna functions, which are closely connected with this theory, and on nonlinear eigenvalue problems. Key topics include: spectral theory for normal operators; perturbation theory for self-adjoint operators in Krein spaces; and, models for generalized Nevanlinna functions.
From Differential and Integral Equations to Game Theory

This monograph provides a unified and comprehensive treatment of an order-theoretic fixed point theory in partially ordered sets and its various useful interactions with topological structures. The material progresses systematically, by presenting the preliminaries before moving to more advanced topics. In the treatment of the applications a wide range of mathematical theories and methods from nonlinear analysis and integration theory are applied; an outline of which has been given an appendix chapter to make the book self-contained. Graduate students and researchers in nonlinear analysis, pure and applied mathematics, game theory and mathematical economics will find this book useful.
This book presents results on the geometric/topological structure of the solution set S of an initial-value problem x(t) = f(t, x(t)), x(0) =xo, when f is a continuous function with values in an infinite-dimensional space. A comprehensive survey of existence results and the properties of S, e.g. when S is a connected set, a retract, an acyclic set, is presented. The authors also survey results onthe properties of S for initial-value problems involving differential inclusions, and for boundary-value problems. This book will be of particular interest to researchers in ordinary and partial differential equations and some workers in control theory.
Many problems in partial differential equations which arise from physical models can be considered as ordinary differential equations in appropriate infinite dimensional spaces, for which elegant theories and powerful techniques have recently been developed. This book gives a detailed account of the current state of the theory of nonlinear differential equations in a Banach space, and discusses existence theory for differential equations with continuous and discontinuous right-hand sides. Of special importance is the first systematic presentation of the very important and complex theory of multivalued discontinuous differential equations
International Conference in Newport Beach, December 14-18, 1998
Author: A.V. Balakrishnan
These Proceedings comprise the bulk of the papers presented at the Inter national Conference on Semigroups of Opemtors: Theory and Contro~ held 14-18 December 1998, Newport Beach, California, U.S.A. The intent of the Conference was to highlight recent advances in the the ory of Semigroups of Operators which provides the abstract framework for the time-domain solutions of time-invariant boundary-value/initial-value problems of partial differential equations. There is of course a firewall between the ab stract theory and the applications and one of the Conference aims was to bring together both in the hope that it may be of value to both communities. In these days when all scientific activity is judged by its value on "dot com" it is not surprising that mathematical analysis that holds no promise of an immediate commercial product-line, or even a software tool-box, is not high in research priority. We are particularly pleased therefore that the National Science Foundation provided generous financial support without which this Conference would have been impossible to organize. Our special thanks to Dr. Kishan Baheti, Program Manager.
Results from the now-classical distribution theory involving convolution and Fourier transformation are extended to cater for Colombeau's generalized functions. Indications are given how these particular generalized functions can be used to investigate linear equations and pseudo differential operators. Furthermore, applications are also given to problems with nonregular data.
