In this project we study applications of nonlinear analysis techniques to semilinear elliptic equations such as the Brezis-Nirenberg problem, the Coron's problem, the Hénon equation and possibly other related models. Regarding the case of problems with subcritical nonlinearity we are interested in combine variational methods and perturbation methods to prove the existence of solutions. As for the case of problems with supercritical nonlinearity we plan to apply bifurcation theory and perturbation methods to prove the existence of solutions. Moreover, we are interested in some properties of these solutions such as: asymptotic behaviour, symmetry type, Morse index and decay rate for problems in unbounded domains. To deal with some of these problems we intend to develop new techniques and adapt the perturbation methods to treat the degenerate case where the classical method does not apply. (AU)
