The proof relies on a Lyapunov-Schmidt reduction and a Nash-Moser iteration scheme.1 aBaldi, P1 aBerti, Massimiliano uhttp://hdl.handle.net/1963/264300868nas a2200109 4500008004300000245007300043210006900116520049600185100002400681700001700705856003600722 2006 en_Ud 00aForced vibrations of wave equations with non-monotone nonlinearities0 aForced vibrations of wave equations with nonmonotone nonlinearit3 aWe prove existence and regularity of periodic in time solutions of completely resonant nonlinear forced wave equations with Dirichlet boundary conditions for a large class of non-monotone forcing terms. Our approach is based on a variational Lyapunov-Schmidt reduction. It turns out that the infinite dimensional bifurcation equation exhibits an intrinsic lack of compactness. We solve it via a minimization argument and a-priori estimate methods inspired to regularity theory of Rabinowitz.1 aBerti, Massimiliano1 aBiasco, Luca uhttp://hdl.handle.net/1963/216000795nas a2200121 4500008004300000245006000043210006000103260004800163520038200211100002400593700002000617856003600637 2002 en_Ud 00aFast Arnold diffusion in systems with three time scales0 aFast Arnold diffusion in systems with three time scales bAmerican Institute of Mathematical Sciences3 aWe consider the problem of Arnold Diffusion for nearly integrable partially isochronous Hamiltonian systems with three time scales.
