# Superdiffusions and Positive Solutions of Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations

Share this page
*E. B. Dynkin*

This book is devoted to the applications of probability
theory to the theory of nonlinear partial differential equations. More
precisely, it is shown that all positive solutions for a class of nonlinear elliptic
equations in a domain are described in terms of their traces on the
boundary of the domain. The main probabilistic tool is the theory of
superdiffusions, which describes a random evolution of a cloud of
particles. A substantial enhancement of this theory is presented that
will be of interest to anyone who works on applications of
probabilistic methods to mathematical analysis.

The book is suitable for graduate students and research
mathematicians interested in probability theory and its applications
to differential equations.

Also of interest by this author is Diffusions,
Superdiffusions and Partial Differential Equations in the AMS
series, Colloquium
Publications.
