The objectives of this project are various and diversified in different research fields of Mathematical Analysis as Ordinary Differential Equations, Elliptic Partial Differential Equations, Calculus of Variations,
Set-valued Analysis, Non-smooth Analysis, Minimax Problems, Global Optimization of Connected Functionals, Maximum Principles, Variational and Variational-Hemivariational Inequalities, Qualitative Properties of Solutions, Modular Spaces (Orlicz Spaces, as in particular, Sobolev Spaces with Variable Exponent), Discrete and Fractionals Problems, and so on. In this project, however, all previous arguments are linked by a common denominator that we can summarize as “Nonlinear Differential Problems”.
The workplace is divided into 12 work-packages (WP).
