Abstract

In this paper, I give an overview of the rapidly growing research work originated from my recent results on local minima of sequentially weakly lower semicontinuous functionals in reflexive Banach spaces. Particular emphasis is placed on the applications of the basic theory to differential equations.

Keywords

Local minima sequential weak lower semicontinuity variational methods Dirichlet problem Neumann problem multiplicity of solutions
