Geometric properties of semilinear PDEs and applications

Abstract

We consider some semilinear PDE (like $Lu=f(u)$) and we discuss some geometric features of the solution, such as: Poincare-type estimates, rigidity and symmetry results and pointwise gradient bounds. Some application to nonlocal operators, fibered materials and water wave will be also given.
