On the size of the nodal sets of solutions of elliptic and parabolic PDEs
We present several results on the size of the nodal (zero) set for solutions of partial differential equations of elliptic and parabolic type. In particular, we show a sharp upper bound for the $(n-1)$-dimensional Hausdorff measure of the nodal sets of the eigenfunctions of regular analytic elliptic problems in ${\mathbb R}^n$. We also show certain more recent results concerning semilinear equations (e.g. Navier-Stokes equations) and equations with non-analytic coefficients. The results on the size of nodal sets are connected to quantitative unique continuation, i.e., on the estimate of the order of vanishing of solutions of PDEs at a point. The results on unique continuation are joint with Ignatova and Camliyurt.
