We introduce a new concept of solution for the Dirichlet problem for the total variational flow named entropy solution. Using Kruzhkov's method of doubling variables both in space and in time we prove uniqueness and a comparison principle in L¹ for entropy solutions. To prove the existence we use the nonlinear semigroup theory and we show that when the initial and boundary data are nonnegative the semigroup solutions are strong solutions.

Introduction. Set up by Hardy & Littlewood, a theory of rearrangements was popularized by the wellknown book [HLP]. Rearrangements of functions are frequently used in real and harmonic analysis, in investigations about singular integrals and function spaces  see, e.g., [He], [ON], [ONW], [SW]. P'olya & Szego and their followers demonstrated a good many isoperimetric theorems and inequalities by means of rearrangements  see [PS], a source book on this matter. More recent investigations have shown 178 G. TALENTI that rearrangements of functions fit well also into the theory of elliptic secondorder partial differential equations  see, e.g., [Bae], [Ta3] and the bibliography therein. Several types of rearrangements are known  presentations are in [Ka] and [Bae]. Here we limit ourselves to rearrangements `a la Hardy & Littlewood. 1.2. Definitions and basic properties.

. Consider a ddimensional Brownian motion X = (X 1 ; : : : ; X d ) and a function F which belongs locally to the Sobolev space W 1;2 . We prove an extension of Ito's formula where the usual second order terms are replaced by the quadratic covariations [f k (X); X k ] involving the weak first partial derivatives f k of F . In particular we show that for any locally squareintegrable function f the quadratic covariations [f(X); X k ] exist as limits in probability for any starting point, except for some polar set. The proof is based on new approximation results for forward and backward stochastic integrals. Key words: Ito's formula, Brownian motion, stochastic integrals, quadratic covariation, Dirichlet spaces, polar sets. Supported in part by ONR grant # N000149610262 and NSF grant # 9401109INT 1. Introduction The behavior of a smooth function F on R d along the paths of ddimensional Brownian motion is described as follows by Ito's formula. Let P x be the distribu...
Repulsion and Quantization in AlmostHarmonic Maps, and Asymptotics of the Harmonic Map Flow

We present an analysis of boundedenergy lowtension maps between 2spheres. By deriving sharp estimates for the ratio of length scales on which bubbles of opposite orientation develop, we show that we can establish a `quantization estimate' which constrains the energy of the map to lie near to a discrete energy spectrum. One application is to the asymptotics of the harmonic map flow; we find uniform exponential convergence in time, in the case under consideration.

We establish various uniformity properties of the harmonic map heat flow, including uniform convergence in L 2 exponentially as t ! 1, and uniqueness of the positions of bubbles at infinite time. Our hypotheses are that the flow is between 2spheres, and that the limit map and any bubbles share the same orientation. 1. Introduction Let us consider smooth maps OE : S 2 ! S 2 . We use z = x + iy as a complex coordinate on the domain, obtained by stereographic projection, and write the metric as oe 2 dzdz, where oe(z) = 2 1 + jzj 2 : Similarly we have a coordinate u on the target, and a metric ae 2 dudu. We are using the notation dz = dx + idy; dz = dx \Gamma idy; with analogues for du and du, and we will write u z = 1 2 (u x \Gamma iu y ); u z = 1 2 (u x + iu y ): To the map OE we associate the energy densities e @ (OE) = ae 2 (u) oe 2 ju z j 2 ; e @ (OE) = ae 2 (u) oe 2 ju z j 2 ; Received October 30, 1995. 593 594 peter miles topping and e(OE) =...

We describe the transfer operator approach to coupled map lattices (CML) in cases where the local map is expanding but has no Markov partition (e.g. a general tent map). The coupling is allowed to be nonlocal, but the total influence of all sites j<F NaN> 6= i on site i must be small. The main technical tool are latticesize independent estimates of LasotaYorke type which show that the transfer (PerronFrobenius) operator of the coupled system is quasicompact as an operator on the space of functions of bounded variation. 1 Introduction The purpose of this note is to summarize results from [11] and from the unpublished thesis [12]. Let L be a finite or countable index set, e.g. L = Zor L = Zn dZ. We investigate timediscrete dynamics on the state space X = [0; 1] L that are composed of independent chaotic actions on each component [0; 1] of X followed by some weak interaction that does not destroy the chaotic character of the whole system. More specifically, let ø : [0; 1] ! [0; 1]...
