Systems of equations: particular examples
No general theory for systems of nonlinear equations exists. Systems usually require a combination of specific, sometimes very sophisticated tricks, possibly with a fixed-point technique finely fitted to a particular structure. Although certain general approaches can be adopted, a pragmatic observation is that systems are much more difficult than single equations and sometimes only partial results (typically for small data) can be obtained with current knowledge. Even worse, many natural systems arising from physical problems still remain unsolved with respect to even the existence of a solution.
We confine ourselves to only a few illustrative examples having a straightforward physical interpretation and using the previously exposed theory in a nontrivial but still rather uncomplicated manner.
