Title: Boundary Value Problems at Resonance and Fixed Point Theorems

Abstract: If one writes a boundary value problem in the form Ly=Ny, where L denotes a linear operator and N denotes a nonlinear operator, then we say the boundary value problem is at resonance if the homogenous problem, Ly=0, has nontrivial solutions.  In recent years, there has been considerable activity to develop fixed point theorems to apply to to problems at resonance.  In this talk we present a survey of some of the work in recent mathematics clinics projects; we will close with a surprising (that would be an opinion) application of monotone methods.  

Refreshments are available at 3:00 PM in SC 313F.
