We consider a nonlinear Neumann problem driven by the $p$-Laplacian differential operator and with a nonsmooth potential function (hemivariational inequality). Using a degree-theoretic approach based on the degree map for certain multivalued perturbations of $(S)_+$-operators, we prove the existence of a nontrivial smooth solution.
We consider radial blowup solutions to an elliptic-parabolic system in $N$-dimensional Euclidean space. The system is introduced to describe several phenomena, for example, motion of bacteria by chemotaxis and equilibrium of self-attracting clusters. In the case where $N \geq 3$, we can find positive and radial backward self-similar solutions which blow up in finite time. In the present paper, in the case where $N \geq 11$, we show the existence of a radial blowup solution whose blowup speed is faster than the one of backward self-similar solutions, by using so-called asymptotic matched expansion techniques.
We consider the asymptotic behavior of perturbations of Lax and overcompressive-type viscous shock profiles arising in systems of regularized conservation laws with strictly parabolic viscosity, and also in systems of conservation laws with partially parabolic regularizations such as arise in the case of the compressible Navier--Stokes equations and in the equations of magnetohydrodynamics. Under the necessary conditions of spectral and hyperbolic stability, together with transversality of the connecting profile, we establish detailed pointwise estimates on perturbations from a sum of the viscous shock profile under consideration and a family of diffusion waves which propagate perturbation signals along outgoing characteristics. Our approach combines the recent $L^p$-space analysis of Raoofi  with a straightforward bootstrapping argument that relies on a refined description of nonlinear signal interactions, which we develop through convolution estimates involving Green's functions for the linear evolutionary PDE that arises upon linearization of the regularized conservation law about the distinguished profile. Our estimates are similar to, though slightly weaker than, those developed by Liu in his landmark result on the case of weak Lax-type profiles arising in the case of identity viscosity .
