Topological Methods, Variational Methods And Their Applications - Proceedings Of The Icm2002 Satellite Conference On Nonlinear Functional Analysis

ICM 2002 Satellite Conference on Nonlinear Analysis was held in the period: August 14-18, 2002 at Taiyuan, Shanxi Province, China. This conference was organized by Mathematical School of Peking University, Academy of Mathematics and System Sciences of Chinese Academy of Sciences, Mathematical school of Nankai University, and Department of Mathematics of Shanxi University, and was sponsored by Shanxi Province Education Committee, Tian Yuan Mathematics Foundation, and Shanxi University.166 mathematicians from 21 countries and areas in the world attended the conference. 53 invited speakers and 30 contributors presented their lectures. This conference aims at an overview of the recent development in nonlinear analysis. It covers the following topics: variational methods, topological methods, fixed point theory, bifurcations, nonlinear spectral theory, nonlinear Schroedinger equations, semilinear elliptic equations, Hamiltonian systems, central configuration in N-body problems and variational problems arising in geometry and physics.
