A priori bounds for a class of nonlinear elliptic equations and applications to physical problems

  • Catherine Bandle (a1)


Upper and lower bounds for the solutions of a nonlinear Dirichlet problem are given and isoperimetric inequalities for the maximal pressure of an ideal charged gas are constructed. The method used here is based on a geometrical result for two-dimensional abstract surfaces.
