### The composition of a dissipative operator and a positive operator is dissipative?

Consider the following bilinear system on a open and bounded domain $\Omega$ \left\{\begin{array}{r c l} \displaystyle\frac{dy(t)}{dt} &=& Ay(t)+u(t)By(t)\\ y(0) &...

### $L^\infty(\Omega)$-regularity for strongly damped wave equation

I am interested in the following IBVP for the strongly damped wave equation: u_{tt}-c^2\Delta u-b\Delta u_t+eu_t=f(x,t) \quad \text{in} \ \Omega \times (0,T), \\ u=0 \quad \text{on} \ ...

### Can you hear the shape of a drum by choosing where to drum it?

I find the problem of hearing the shape of a drum fascinating. Specifically, given two connected subsets of $\mathbb R^2$ with piecewise-smooth boundaries (or a suitable generalization to a riemannian ...

### A specific mollified functions in the Sobolev space H^1(R)

Let $u>0$ be in $H^{1}(\mathbb{R})=W^{1,2}(\mathbb{R})$, we know that the set of $C^{\infty}$ functions with compact support are dense in the Sobolev space $H^{1}(\mathbb{R})$. Hence, we have a ...

### The Lie algebra of Harmonic functions

Is there a Riemannian metric $g$ on $\mathbb{R}^{2}$ with corresponding volume form $\omega= \sqrt{det(g_{ij})} dx \wedge dy$ and the corresponding Laplace operator $\Delta$ such that the space ...

### Boundary conditions for Klein-Gordon equation

Let us consider the Klein-Gordon equation $$(\Box +m^2)u=0,$$ where $u$ is a scalar valued function, $m\geq 0$, $\Box=\frac{\partial^2}{\partial x_0^2}-\sum_{i=1}^d\frac{\partial^2}{\partial x_i^2}$. ...

### Existence and uniqueness of solutions for a nonlinear elliptic PDE

The following nonlinear elliptic PDE arose in my research: $$\Delta f - e^f \partial_s f = E(s,t)\,,$$ where $f : \mathbb R(s) \times \mathbb R/\mathbb Z(t) \to \mathbb R$, $f = f(s,t)$, is the ...
