ABSTRACT. We derive an a prioriC 2,α estimate for solutions of the fully nonlinear elliptic equationF(D 2 u) = 0, provided the level setΣ={MF(M)=0} satisfies: (a)Σ∩{MTrM= t} is strictly convex for all constants t; (b) the angle between the identity matrixI and the normalFij toΣis strictly positive on the nonconvex part of Σ. Moreover, we do not need any convexity assumption onF in the course of the proof for the two dimensional case, as the classical result indicates. 1.

, 1999
"... We consider the symmetric nonlocal Dirichlet form (E, F) given by E(f, f) = (f(y) − f(x)) 2 J(x, y)dxdy Rd Rd with F the closure of the set of C 1 functions on R d with compact support with respect to E1, where E1(f, f): = E(f, f) + ∫ R d f(x) 2 dx, and where the jump kernel J satisfies κ1y − x ..."

We consider the symmetric nonlocal Dirichlet form (E, F) given by E(f, f) = (f(y) − f(x)) 2 J(x, y)dxdy Rd Rd with F the closure of the set of C 1 functions on R d with compact support with respect to E1, where E1(f, f): = E(f, f) + ∫ R d f(x) 2 dx, and where the jump kernel J satisfies κ1y − x  −d−α ≤ J(x, y) ≤ κ2y − x  −d−β for 0 < α < β < 2, x − y  < 1. This assumption allows the corresponding jump process to have jump intensities whose size depends on the position of the process and the direction of the jump. We prove upper and lower estimates on the heat kernel. We construct a strong Markov process corresponding to (E, F). We prove a parabolic Harnack inequality for nonnegative functions that solve the heat equation with respect to E. Finally we construct an example where the corresponding harmonic functions need not be continuous.

We show that, if a certain Sobolev inequality holds, then a scaleinvariant elliptic Harnack inequality suces to imply its a priori stronger parabolic counterpart. Neither the relative Sobolev inequality nor the elliptic Harnack inequality alone suces to imply the parabolic Harnack inequality in question; both are necessary conditions. As an application, we show the equivalence between parabolic Harnack inequality for on M , (i.e., for @ t + ) and elliptic Harnack inequality for @ 2 t + on R M . 1

In this paper, we study quasistationarity for a large class of Kolmogorov diffusions. The main novelty here is that we allow the drift to go to − ∞ at the origin, and the diffusion to have an entrance boundary at +∞. These diffusions arise as images, by a deterministic map, of generalized Feller diffusions, which themselves are obtained as limits of rescaled birth–death processes. Generalized Feller diffusions take nonnegative values and are absorbed at zero in finite time with probability 1. An important example is the logistic Feller diffusion. We give sufficient conditions on the drift near 0 and near + ∞ for the existence of quasistationary distributions, as well as rate of convergence in the Yaglom limit and existence of the Qprocess. We also show that under these conditions, there is exactly one quasistationary distribution, and it attracts all initial distributions under the conditional evolution, if and only if + ∞ is an entrance boundary. In particular this gives a sufficient condition for the uniqueness of quasistationary distributions. In the proofs spectral theory plays an important role on L 2 of the reference measure for the killed process.

We consider solutions of a scalar reactiondiffusion equation of the ignition type with a random, stationary and ergodic reaction rate. We show that solutions of the Cauchy problem spread with a deterministic rate in the long time limit. We also establish existence of generalized random traveling waves and of transition fronts in general heterogeneous media.
