The major objective of the publication is to supply a entire and self-contained evidence of the, rather fresh, theorem of characterization of the robust greatest precept because of Molina-Meyer and the writer, released in Diff. Int. Eqns. in 1994, which was once later sophisticated by means of Amann and the writer in a paper released in J. of Diff. Eqns. in 1998. along with this characterization has been proven to be a pivotal end result for the advance of the fashionable conception of spatially heterogeneous nonlinear elliptic and parabolic difficulties; it has allowed us to replace the classical concept at the greatest and minimal rules by means of supplying with a few super sharp refinements of the classical result of Hopf and Protter-Weinberger. by means of a celebrated results of Berestycki, Nirenberg and Varadhan, Comm. natural Appl. Maths. in 1994, the characterization theorem is partly actual below no regularity constraints at the aid area for Dirichlet boundary conditions.

Instead of encyclopedic generality, this ebook will pay specified consciousness to completeness, readability and transparency of its exposition in order that it may be taught even at a complicated undergraduate point. Adopting this attitude, it's a textbook; even though, it's at the same time a examine monograph concerning the greatest precept, because it brings jointly for the 1st time within the type of a publication, the main paradigmatic classical effects including a sequence of contemporary primary effects scattered in a couple of self sufficient papers via the writer of this publication and his collaborators.

Chapters three, four, and five may be added as a classical undergraduate, or graduate, direction in Hilbert house ideas for linear moment order elliptic operators, and Chaps. 1 and a couple of whole the classical effects at the minimal precept coated through the paradigmatic textbook of Protter and Weinberger through incorporating a few fresh category theorems of supersolutions by way of Walter, 1989, and the writer, 2003. hence, those 5 chapters will be taught at an undergraduate, or graduate, point. Chapters 6 and seven examine the distinguished theorem of Krein–Rutman and infer from it the characterizations of the robust greatest precept of Molina-Meyer and Amann, in collaboration with the writer, that have been integrated to a textbook through the 1st time the following, in addition to the result of Chaps. eight and nine, sharpening a few contemporary joint paintings of Cano-Casanova with the writer. for this reason, the second one half the ebook involves a extra really good monograph at the greatest precept and the underlying critical eigenvalues.
